Dartmoor Landscape

Not quite the knights in shining armour of the stories of old, but a modern quest for budding writers to help shape the future of Dartmoor.   Wordquest Devon, in partnership with Dartmoor National Park Authority, is offering a challenge to experienced or first-time writers to create fictions set in a sustainable Dartmoor of the future.

To help in this quest, Wordquest is offering a series of free creative writing workshops, suitable for all levels of experience, from complete beginners to professionals.   The workshops are free of charge, but you will need to bring your own lunch, or cafes are available nearby.

Wednesday 21st September 2011 10.30am to 4.00pm St Lawrence’s Chapel, St. Lawrence Lane, Ashburton, Devon TQ13 7DD
