We held our final Leicester Stories workshop today at Westcotes Library. We had our biggest turn out and some really interesting work written by all who came from fantasy to dystopian, horror to children’s. It was great. There seems to be so many people out there who can write but don’t have the confidence to give it a go. What is the answer? How should we encourage writers to write?

I hope that An attempt at Exhausting a Place in Leicester will show that writing opportunities are out there for people and it just takes that little bit of courage to take the first step and put pen to paper. Who knows where those first few words can take you. Just Write!
