Inside the Writer’s Notebook is an inspiring and interactive workshop, examining how the use of journals, notebooks and sketchbooks can underpin your creative practice, whether you’re writing fiction, memoir or poetry.


We explore the ways that writers and thinkers have used their notebooks as a laboratory to capture and test their ideas. And I show how diaries, letters and drawings made it possible for me to write my memoir, The Mahogany Pod.
