Enjoy a bit of literary fun with All About Writing and Slow Life at our creative writing workshops at Casa Labia in Muizenberg. Be inspired by the cry of gulls as you release your creativity, build your confidence and allow your imagination to take flight.
It’s a fun morning which includes a couple of creative exercises, some personal feedback and breakfast, with lots of chat between like-minded people.
The creative writing workshop will be of equal benefit to more experienced writers wanting to augment their skills, and to those with no experience at all, who are looking for a place to start.
It will be presented by author Jo-Anne Richards.
Date: 4 April
COST R 475
