New Words Festival – creative writing workshops with Sarah Schofield

Do you enjoy creative writing? Is playing with words – writing poems, stories or memoir – something you’d like to try? Time to Read invite you to join writer, Sarah Schofield, for two creative writing workshops for Tameside Libraries and Wirral Libraries on Monday 1 March and Wednesday 4 March.
