Creative Writing Workshop: The Storyteller in You – The Arts Centre, Jersey 9th-11th June 2017


"There is no such thing as an 'aspiring writer'. 
You are a writer. Period.” 
Matthew Reilly, Area 7

I agree with Matthew Reilly’s words of wisdom from his novel Area 7 to a degree, but you have to aspire to succeed and to succeed you need confidence.

Starting out as a writer is a lonely place and finding someone to help you build your confidence and self-belief is not always easy.

Jersey is a very small island and we rarely have the opportunity to entertain visitors who come over to share the passion and fire they feel about their chosen careers.  But, just once a year, we aspiring writers do get lucky, we have the opportunity to learn from two extraordinarily motivating teachers who are passionate about creative writing, Barbara Large and Adrienne Dines.

From the 9th-11th June 2017 they will be providing the tools and the stimulus to release the storyteller in you at the Arts Centre Jersey.

 Barbara Large MBE has spent most of her life encouraging others release their inner storyteller.

‘It is vital to provide ways of encouraging talent and creativity if we are committed to making progress in building our ‘new society’, to encourage 
people to think creatively and to have the confidence to believe in 
themselves. Writing is a profession that is difficult to embrace without 
Barbara Large

 Adrienne Dines is a novelist, creative writing tutor and after-dinner speaker, who so enthusiastically imparts both her wit and creative wisdom.

I first met them at their Arts Centre weekend in 2015 and their enthusiasm rubbed off on me with such a force that I started writing the novel that I never quite had the impetus to start, let alone finish, as soon as I got home.  As of now, I am about to finish the second re-write.

You need fire in your belly to write and a weekend absorbing ideas, writing techniques, as well as having the opportunity to bounce ideas off other like-minded people, will fan the flame.

Hang out with like-minded people at the Creative Writing Workshop with Barbara Large and Adrienne Dines at the Art’s Centre Jersey, 9th-11th June 2017

If you only feel a spark in your belly today, but you want the fire to take hold, sign up for the Creative Writing Workshop with Barbara Large and Adrienne Dines and make it happen.
