Writing Around the Kids – 26 June

With Anna Jefferson

On National Writing Day, a creative writing workshop aimed at mothers of young children. This is an opportunity to chat about the challenges and triumphs of motherhood with other women, using personal experiences as the springboard to writing creatively. The one-off workshops are aimed at writers of all abilities.

The sessions are led by playwright and author Anna Jefferson. Anna has written for stage and screen since 2005. Having grown up in rural Lincolnshire, her work draws on her abiding love of northern England, its people and humour. Anna is founder and co-director of Broken Leg Theatre. She has written and toured five plays, having most recently co-written Three Generations of Women, which toured nationally to critical acclaim.

Her first novel, You Can Take Her Home Now, about the first year of parenting set against a backdrop of growing up in 90s Lincolnshire, is due for publication in in February 2020 with Orion. Anna’s second book is due for publication in later that year.
