David Wibberly – Workshop: Writing from Life

Writing from LifePutting your life experiences on the page

£25 – limited spaces so please book early to secure a place

Everyone’s lives are full of experiences, every day we all gain more unique insights into the world.

In the coffee shop, on your way to work, in the street, everywhere we go we are surrounded by great ideas for both fiction and non-fiction writing.

Through a series of tutor-led presentations, practical exercises, and group discussions this workshop will show you how to turn your own personal experiences into an endless supply of ideas and get them down on the page.


About David

David came to the world of writing later in life than many; he was a firefighter for 32 years, but he believes this is the main reason his writing always has a new and fresh feel to it. David has been widely published in recent years, both nationally and internationally.

Originally drawn to the news and political satire, David has successfully branched out into writing workshops specialising in creative writing, journalling, and wellbeing. These workshops have been delivered across the country and are always well-received.
