Doors open: 5:55 pm

Do you live or work in Greensand Country?  Are you an aspiring writer?  Are you passionate about your local landscape and often feel inspired to write but you’re not sure how to go about doing so?

Well, why not join Dr Tim Jarvis to learn more about landscape writing and how our surrounds can help shape our creative response. These workshops will respond to Greensand Country, encourage you to explore your local environment and build confidence to help you share your work.

Greensand Country Landscape Partnership are delighted to commission Tim Jarvis to deliver this course.

Other recent short fiction has appeared in Chiaroscuro VoidThe Shadow BoothBitter DistillationsInvite to Eternity, and other venues.
