Budding writers are invited to explore their creative side at Newton Aycliffe library this month.
North East writer Rachel Cochrane is heading to Durham County Council libraries to host ‘New Year, New You’ themed writing sessions to encourage and inspire creative minds.
In the two-hour sessions Rachel will use diaries, archive materials and stories to stimulate the imaginations of participants and give advice and support on bringing words to life.
Finished works will be compiled by Rachel to be displayed at the libraries.
Three pieces of writing from everything produced in the workshops will also be chosen and recorded in audio, for a podcast.
Rachel said: “Express yourself! The sessions are relaxed and informal, using the theme of diaries as inspiration for your own writing.
“All are welcome including those new to writing and trying it for the first time.”
All sessions cost £1 and booking is required, by phoning the host library.
Rachel will be at Aycliffe library on Friday January 19, 2-4pm, and those interested are asked to call 03000 269 519.
