Adult Support: Creative Writing
January 23 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
This group is open to any autistic person over the age of 18
A regular two-hour Zoom class based on the Twenty-Four Chapters in the book Springboards: A Creative Writing Manual for Beginners through to Facilitators, written by the Class Facilitator Mary Farrell. Each lesson follows the same pattern – with theory, examples, exercises, and follow-on activities – focusing on a single area each time, aimed at building confidence and familiarity with different aspects of writing. Stimuli are presented in each Zoom, with feedback given on the work written. The classes cater for a wide range of writers, from complete beginners through to those with more experience.
Dates: 16th January, 23rd January, 30th January, 6th February, 13th February, 20th February
Instructor: Mary Farrell
