Learn the art of writing at Corinium Museum Event

Find out about the art of writing at an afternoon tutorial with author, Rona Laycock, at the Corinium Museum, Cirencester, on Wednesday 16th May.

Rona, whose work has been published by Magma, Ragged Raven Press and Red Pepper Poetry among others, writes poetry and short stories and is currently working on her first full length novel. She'll be talking about her experiences as a writer, giving advice on where to start and how organise a writing project, as well as the mechanics of writing a good story and getting published.

Outreach Officer Helen Arbon, said: "This informal session offers participants the chance to find out about the life of a writer, the hazards and pitfalls, and the work that goes into crafting a good story. A must for anybody who loves books or who has ever thought about writing."

The tutorial will run from 2pm - 4pm, with a break for tea. Tickets cost 6.50 with 10% discount for annual season ticket holders and Friends of the Corinium Museum. Booking is essential.
