Creative Writing Days

JJ and owlThis week we have details of a great opportunity for local writers, brought to you by CWC member, Jackie Juno.

Jackie is running two days of Creative Writing for writers in most genres, at a stunning manor house near Moretonhampstead on Dartmoor.

Manor Writing JJEach day is a stand-alone event so there is the choice to attend one or both days.

The venue is perfect to inspire creativity, with its sumptuous interior and lots of places to write. The beautiful grounds boast features such as rose garden, ancient trees, lawns, fountain, folly and ornamental gardens.

There will be lots of writing exercises and challenges to get the creative juices flowing; also opportunity to share your work and listen to others. In the afternoons there will be a critiquing session to help gain fresh perspective on any work with which you may be stuck. Guidance will be given beforehand on constructive ways to critique others’ work.

Jackie’s approach is supportive, inclusive and sensitive – and a great deal of fun!

For details and how to book contact her on or phone 01626 835802.

Jackie is primarily a poet; she also writes scripts and lyrics, multi-media shows and the occasional short story. She has won and been a finalist in many international competitions, including Arvon, Leominster Poetry Prize, Writing Magazine, Glastonbury Festival Poetry Slam, Plymouth Literary Festival Slam, and has performed at two TEDx Talks, and at the National Slam finals at the Albert Hall (2018). She won the title of Bard of Exeter in 2011 and has held the title Grand Bard of Exeter since 2012. You can find out more about her on her website.
