Careys Secret Garden

New to writing? Fancy a taste of the wordsmith life? This workshop will give you an introduction to writing, with exercises to build confidence and help budding writers explore their inner voice. 

If you’re a beginner or inexperienced writer and are interested in developing your skills and confidence as both a non-fiction or fictional writer then this is the workshop for you.  This 2-hour introduction to writing workshop explores writing techniques and helps you to find your own writer's voice. 

Get inspired by the beautiful backdrop of Carey’s Secret Garden and enjoy the tranquility in nature itself, then leave with some tricks up your sleeve for keeping your writing flowing.

This workshop is led by Dorset-based writer Katie Dancey-Downs, who writes everything from narrative non-fiction to short stories. Katie has written features for publications including Huffpost, i News, and Resurgence Magazine, as well as penning creative projects for the likes of Lush, Ordnance Survey, and the Co-op Foundation. She’s got a particular interest in the environment, nature, and human stories, and has travelled the world to tell tales of people and the planet. Katie has a Master’s degree in Journalism and was a finalist for The New Media Writing Prize, a runner up for The Fresher's Writing Prize, and long-listed for the Freelance Writing Awards.
