Tomorrow is the award ceremony for the Exeter Story prize, and our Ce is on the shortlist with her story Naked in the Rain. In celebration of this, we’ve put together photos from some of our favourite writing events from the last few years.
Good luck, Celia 🙂 xx

The Totleigh 13! Not everyone who goes on an Arvon course get to spend the week with Donovan but Debbie did!
Another inspirational Arvon course again for Debbie with tutors Kate Long and Simon Thirsk. This time it was at the former home of poet and children’s writer, Ted Hughes – Lumb Bank in Heptonstall.
Following Tamsyn Murray’s ‘Live, Breathe, Love Writing’ workshop in Cheshunt earlier this year, Debbie has since typed ‘THE END’ on the WIP she struggled with for four years!
