PROJECTS: networking + feedback Wednesdays, 12:00 - 1:00 (UK)
Write With Me is an hour of accountable writing time, hosted by Demi Anter. The hour starts with five minutes for greetings and chat, followed by 45 minutes of writing time. It ends with time for attendees to share anything they would like about their experience of writing that morning.
The aim of the session is to give writers the community and accountability offered by a writing group, accessible from home. One hour carved out at the start of each week before normal working hours*: No excuses. Suitable for all types of writers (and "non-writers!") and experience levels.
PROJECTS is a lunchtime* networking and feedback session for artists of all types who are currently working on a particular project. They may be in the planning phase, production phase, or still at the dreaming stage. All are welcome to join and share ideas, ask questions, identify potential collaborators and give constructive advice to one another.
*If you are unable to attend either of these sessions due to the timing but would like to join, please contact Demi via email to propose alternatives.
Payment and booking: Join at any time, though we do recommend arriving at the start of the hour for your first session. All drop-in sessions are paid on a donation basis via a link shared at the end of the class, with a suggested donation of £3 - £5.
