Maggie’s Centre, Nottingham offers a large selection of courses and workshops throughout the year. A major inspiration behind the ‘Voices’ blog and subsequent competition has been the Creative Writing Group.
The group meets fortnightly on Friday afternoons at the Centre. Workshops – led by Nottingham writer Clare Stevens – focus on the therapeutic benefits of creative writing and provide a chance to experiment with different forms in a safe, supportive environment. You can find out about the Creative Writing Group’s schedule here: What’s on at Maggie’s?
Clare has enjoyed a varied career in journalism, government communications and creative writing, and this year saw the publication of her debut novel ‘Blue Tide Rising’ . Find out more about Clare and her work at: Clare Stevens Biography.
