Writers' Week 2021

Join New Writing South online for our Writers’ Week 2021.

Join us online for our first New Writing South Writers’ Week in October 2021 for a week of tailored activity focussed on the needs of writers, whatever stage they are at.

Featuring Stella Duffy, Beth Miller, Amer Anwar, Yvvette Edwards and Lou Tondeur, expect practical and inspiring sessions to help you get into a writing frame of mind, kickstart a new writing project, find the motivation to keep going or prepare to send work out into the world.

The week will begin with an exclusive Yoga for Writing session with Stella Duffy followed by a series of informative talks and workshops throughout the week plus a limited number of 1-1 writer surgeries with guest writers – book early to avoid disappointment.

Writers’ Week: Yoga for Writing with Stella Duffy (Workshop)

16 October 2021

Yoga is not about getting the poses right, writing is not about getting the words right, they’re both about giving it a go. We will connect yoga poses to writing exercises, exploring the physical nature of writing and how opening up body and breath can support our creativity.
