The course has been arranged by The Writers’ Company. Run by professional authors, the Wivenhoe-based organisation specialises in creative writing courses, events and manuscript services. All courses are taught by professional writers with years of teaching experience.

‘Everyone is welcome,’ says Kate. 'I remember vividly how nervous I was, the evening I started my beginners writing course at Birkbeck. But now I realise, and I reckon most writers would agree, you feel like a beginner every time you sit down to face that blank page, however long you have been writing.’

And one free place has been reserved for someone who needs it.

‘We are very aware just how hard it can be to get yourself onto a course like this,’ adds Kate. 'It’s not just the fee, but arranging and paying for transport and managing caring responsibilities. Let alone summoning the confidence, the time and the energy.'

The Red Lion is Manningtree’s oldest pub dating back to 1605. The Writers Company classes take place in the Pump Room, a quiet and private ground floor room with a small step to outside which is also the venue for a monthly poetry evening. There is plenty of street parking nearby and it’s a 15-minute walk from Manningtree station.

The 10-week course takes place 7 to 9pm from 25 April to 4 July 2018 (with a break for half term on 30 May) at The Red Lion, 42 South Street, Manningtree CO11 1BG.
