Join us, Upstairs at ONCA the Nature, travel and life writing workshop with Joe Minihane

Run by author and travel journalist Joe Minihane, the session will give participants a chance to read relevant extracts from writers such as Peter Matthiessen, Amy Liptrot and Roger Deakin, before giving them time to develop their own practice, sharing ideas and spending time writing short scenes which they will be free to read to the group at the end if they so wish.
