The Scriptorium is a new writers club created by White Rabbit

This spring we are offering a writing course delivered on zoom. Each week you will be given different writing prompts, ideas and examples to give your writing a boost. Whether you are a professional writer, complete newcomer or anything in between there will be something for you here. There’ll be lots of time to write quietly, time to chat, listen and share ideas, and discuss challenges.

Each week will focus on different themes ( see below)

You are welcome to drop in to one class or sign up for the whole course- they are each created to help you generate fresh ideas and material or to give you the space and support to work on something.

Bernadette Russell will be the lead tutor on these classes. She has written 5 books for adults and children ( published by Orion, Quarto and Elliot and Thompson) and has performed her short stories and poems at many venues and festivals including Royal Albert Hall, National Theatre, and Southbank Centre.
