Short Story Factory at Shambellie House


🤔 Always wanted to try creative writing, but not sure where to begin?

🗒 Written in the past, at school or work, but want to try something more creative?

📚 Or are you an experienced writer looking for inspiration or to meet other local writers?


This June, join experienced and published writers Kerrie McKinnel and Steph Newham for this one-day workshop in historic Shambellie House.

In this RELAXED and WELCOMING workshop, you will be guided through the process of creating your own short story – from first ideas through to a completed piece. But DON’T PANIC! We’ll be using a mixture of games and straightforward writing prompts to get our brains moving – trust us, you’ll barely even realise you’re writing a story until you’re halfway there!

Everyone is welcome, from BEGINNERS and nervous writers through to more experienced writers who are looking for inspiration and to network. This will be a practical and engaging day, in an atmospheric and unique venue.


DATE: Saturday 1st June 2019, 10am – 4.30pm.

TICKETS: £25 per person. Includes tea/coffee and a donation towards Shambellie House Trust (Company reg no. 507404 and charitable status SC024140). Booking fee may apply. Please bring a packed lunch.

SKILL LEVEL: Suitable for adult writers and wanna-be writers of all genres and abilities. Beginners and nervous writers welcome.
