The GHT Creative Writing Group returns for Anna Bunting-Branch’s new commission ‘Holding Space’!

Led by Susmita Bhattacharya, the GHT Creative Writing Group offers a series of free writing workshops using our contemporary art programme as the stimulus for creativity. For this workshop, Susmita will be exploring different forms of flash fiction. Beginners welcome!

Outcomes from this workshop will be collated and displayed amongst the exhibition.
