Here the road that had left us behind

stopped and waited for us, asked us

Join our online group for a five-week live, interactive online course writing a new map through this time of uncertainty and change.

In a small, friendly and supportive group (max 10 people), you’ll be guided in using writing as a way to capture and make sense of the upheavals we’ve all faced over the last few months.

We’ll take inspiration from poetry and stories from around the world, helping you to explore and write about beginnings, change, uncertainty, hope and curiosity.

Each session will have some teaching, time for you to write, and some reflection and discussion. You will be welcome to share your writing if you choose.

No prior writing experience is necessary. You can be writing in any genre.



Mandy Ross is a writer and poet, currently training in psychotherapeutic counselling. She has written over 60 children’s books as well as plays and work for adults. She brings together her pleasure in writing with a playful approach to exploring and making.

As one half of Secret City Arts, Mandy works with storytellers, musicians, photographers and filmmakers to bring words off the page. She is currently Tree Whisperer in Residence for Ledbury Poetry Festival.

Please note: you must sign up for the full course even if you do not complete the course. No partial course ticket is available.

Online and in-person Short Courses are for over 18s. If you are a young writer, you can sign up for our Spark Young Writers Programme.
