Writing Group

Venue: Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum

Informal and friendly group, supporting writers at all levels in an inspiring venue. An interest in creative writing is all you need. Facilitated by experienced writer and tutor Charlotte Rigarlsford.

All meetings are 2-3.30pm at the Samuel Johnson Birthplace Museum, by the market square in Lichfield City centre. We normally meet in the birth room. The monthly meetings are facilitated by Charlotte Rigarlsford who is an experienced creative writing tutor and dedicated to encouraging creativity.

Each month a new prompt or idea will be introduced and the writers will free-write for approximately 30 minutes and the remaining time is used to discuss the free-write or writing that is brought along to workshop.

The group is informal and friendly, and seeks to support writers at all levels. An interest in creative writing is all you need.

There is no fee but if you plan to attend please book in with Charlotte by emailing dottielottie@me.com.
