Blackpool Central Library is set to hold a series of writing workshops throughout November for all budding writers to attend during National Novel Writing Month, (NaNoWriMo).

NaNoWriMo is an International Writing Competition for all budding writers to allow their creative talents a chance to be seen and produce a challenging and creative read. To help out the library will host a series of creative writing workshops where the ultimate accolade will be to write a fifty thousand word novel within the month of November.

National Novel Writing Month workshops will take place every Saturday between 10am and 12pm throughout November where all writers will receive support in a ‘Write In’. The workshops are supported by Blackpool and Fylde Writers Group who held their first meeting with intention of bringing like minded, creative writers together to explore story and creation ideas.

This chance of producing a piece of creative writing is a fantastic platform for potential writers whether they have any prior writing experience, or are just trying their hand at a lifelong ambition to have their work read. Blackpool Central Library is a hub of activity with much heritage and is also a lovely meeting point which is surrounded by books of all sorts, and has knowledgeable and friendly librarians at hand to help.

Recently refurbished the library on Queen Street stands juxtaposed with the Grundy Art Gallery, where the current Neon light exhibition is on show. Librarian and Blackpool Heritage expert Tony Sharkey is also available for a talk about Blackpool and new resident poet Lisa Bower is also to hand in to help writers pen their own poem.

Blackpool Deputy Leader, and Councillor, Gillian Campbell has said that “All writers are welcome to attend the workshops which are completely free of charge”.

The Blackpool and Fylde Writers Group, although still in its infancy has been granted its own National Novel Writing month region, where all writers are encouraged to try their best whether it be to have their books published or are just beginners.
