KSP Holiday Hub

Find your inner author in a full day creative workshop at KSP Writers' Centre.

Grab your pen & notebook or laptop and come on over to the hills to meet Elizabeth Lewis, published poet and librarian, who will guide each attendee through the process of creating a compelling story or poem. These pieces will be polished so they can be uploaded to the KSP blog or saved for publication in the professional anthology printed at the end of the year.


Scrap-booking and other book-craft supplies will be provided so writers can take their story home in booklet & zine form, or alternatively, attendees can make an inspiration book designed to keep you wanting to write long after returning home.
