Monday 10th January 9:00am – Monday 21st February 2022 9:00am

God’s House Tower is inviting applications from writers and creatives to facilitate a series of free creative writing workshops using our contemporary art programme as the stimulus for creativity.

 

About the Creative Writing Group

GHT launched the creative writing group in January 2021, meeting online via zoom during GHT’s forced closure in monthly sessions which explored the many chapters of God’s House Tower’s history.

Following on from the success of this activity, and the reopening of the building in July 2021, we now hope to continue this work, using our contemporary art programme as the stimulus for creative writing.
