Charles Lea and the Arts Council Supporting Budding Writers In Trafford

 A series of free creative writing courses are set to start at libraries across Trafford next week.

The Write Time, Write Place project is an eight-week long, adult creative writing courses for beginners, taking place in libraries from April to June.

The 90-minute sessions will take place during the day and will focus on areas that include:

  • inspiration
  • characterisation
  • settings
  • plotting stories
  • revising and editing

The courses are the brainchild of author Charles Lea,who said: “We are delighted that Trafford Libraries have been successful in obtaining funding from the Arts Council and look forward to running the workshops with adults across the borough to inspire their creative writing.

“Feedback from the new writers on the previous courses has been absolutely positive with many not only enjoying the writing aspect, but also commenting on how well the course has boosted their health and wellbeing and confidence.

“The real legacy is that many of these new writers are still meeting up and writing.”

Following on from the workshops, participants will be invited to submit their stories for a Write Time Write Place anthology, which will be professionally published. Participants will also be given the opportunity to read extracts from their stories at a special celebratory event.

Book by email:, or by phoning/emailing the appropriate library.
