  • Workshop: The Writer's Mind

    Where do the best ideas for stories and characters and images come from? Where will you find the most fertile resource for imagination and truth? Where do you glean the answers that evade you at the keyboard? Your mind, of course. Join Alexander Steele, President of New York’s Gotham Writers Workshop and seasoned writing tutor, for a fascinating masterclass in which he will teach you how to unlock your subconscious to enter the more elusive areas of your mind – all in pursuit of making your writing as vibrant as possible.
