Online booking for October workshops in Portsmouth now available!

Online booking is now open for the four weekend writing workshops and special evening panel session at our first event in October.

Omega Centre gears up to welcome Myriad Editions authors, other publishing industry specialists and you!

You can now book online to attend any and all of the sessions at the first Write Now event at Omega Centre in Portsmouth on Saturday 2o and Sunday 21 October 2012.  Places are selling fast, so book now to avoid missing out on what must surely be the best value writer’s course in the UK!  Each workshop costs just £25 to attend, with the evening session How to Get Published costing a mere £5.  You can attend as many or as few workshops as you like, but we think a complete weekend of writing inspiration for just £105 is hard to beat.  Click the links below to read more about each session on the WEA’s course enrolment module; if you like what you see, simple click Enrol Online Now in the bottom left of the screen and follow the instructions – simple!  We very much look forward to seeing you in October!
