Peter Street,


Do you have a story to tell? Do need some help putting pen to paper? If so, then come along to a series of creative writing workshops.

Every story is told from one person’s point of view, and every person’s view is different. Making the choice about which point of view to use can have an enormous impact on your story. In this workshop we will find out who will tell your story, which we will achieve by considering the limitations and advantages of the choices available to us.

Having achieved a 1st class honours degree in English & Creative Writing, Darren Harper has taught A Level Creative Writing at a local sixth form for three years, as well as delivering fiction writing workshops at Higham Hall residential college in Cockermouth.

In addition to winning a prize for one of his short stories, and having a play shortlisted by a theatre company, he has published many theatre reviews and was also a co-founder of LitCaff, an open mic event launched to encourage writers to share their work within the local literary landscape.
