WRITING WORKSHOP: At Shoreham Airport

ASPIRING authors are being invited to attend a fun afternoon of writing at Shoreham Airport.

Tips will include collecting material, finding ways to express thoughts and ideas and paying attention to the senses.

Helen Cross’ first novel, My Summer of Love, won a Betty Trask Award and became a BAFTA award-winning feature film, directed by Pawel Pawlokowksi.

Her short stories have appeared in various magazines and anthologies and been broadcast on Radio 4.

The workshop is on from 2pm to 5pm. Participation is £4.50, free of charge to those affiliated to the airport.
