Derby Poetry Festival and Laurie Bolger’s The Creative Writing Breakfast Club team up for a Sunday Morning Digital Workshop that's sure to get the creative juices flowing. The Creative Writing Breakfast Club, as featured in Time Out, is a Free Flow Creative Writing hour with writer Laurie Bolger. This session is about letting your creativity lead the way, and generating new and exciting writing in your own unique style.

During this 60-minute workshop, Laurie will take you through fast-paced writing exercises to boost mindfulness. With just a pen, paper and somewhere chilled to sit, this workshop will give your imagination the space to soar.

"My first workshop of Laurie's & definitely won’t be my last… ideas exploding all over the shop - thank you, loved it"

“If you ever want a cosy, creative, calming place to explore writing, Laurie's workshops are perfection…My heart is so full (I know what that means now)”
