Writers and Regeneration: Getting started

A workshop led by Sarah Butler, exploring opportunities for writers to work in the field of regeneration, will be held at the University Centre Folkestone on Wednesday 15th February from 10.30am – 3.30pm.

This event will be of interest to writers and creatives working in the field of community arts and regeneration projects, and practising writers looking for further outlets for their work. There will be opportunities for discussion and questions. Topics covered include:

• What is regeneration, and how can writing/literature development work within it?
• Case studies demonstrating different ways of working
• What’s in it for writers?

There will be a lunch break from 12.30-1.30pm. (Please note lunch is not included)
