‘Ignite the Spark’ Creative Writing Autumn Workshop
21st September 2023 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Following on from our sold-out creative writing workshop in the spring, we are thrilled to announce the next Ignite the Spark, quite simply for anyone who has ever dreamt about writing. A one-day workshop dedicated to uncovering your ideas and getting them down on the page. The course is run by Booksmiths – Rebecca Whitney and Alex Hourston, two published, local authors – and set in the beautiful surroundings of our vineyards, with lunch prepared by the fabulous Chalk restaurant and a glass of Wiston bubbles to end the day.
A few words from one of our many satisfied guests: ‘Thank you so much for a brilliant day! It was so interesting and insightful, I came away very inspired … so well planned, with an easy, casual vibe, I felt very at home and not at all out of my depth. I’m buzzing with ideas.’ Catherine.
Becky and Alex offer guests a ten-minute one-to-one at the end of the day to talk through next writing steps or give you further insight into our wealth of industry and creative knowledge.
Queries about location and logistics, please contact Wiston direct: [email protected]
Further details will be sent to attendees before the event.
Cancellation: Full refund issued for any cancellations 30 days before the event. No refund after 21st August.
Please note: Your contact details will be shared with Booksmiths London for the purpose of this event.
Really enjoyable wine tour and tasting as part of a few days in the area. Our guide was an excellent guide and really brought the whole process to life when explaining what Wiston do and how they produce their excellent wines. We sampled a number of different styles and got to understand what makes each unique. It also seems a real family affair and labour of love for all involved. I would highly recommend a visit if in the area, and tag on lunch/dinner in their delightful restaurant if possible. July 2022.
An absolutely fantastic tour! Our tour guide had so much passion and energy that really came through whilst talking to us all. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment! And the wines......... WOW..... We are officially blown away by them! July 2022.
Delicious lunch followed by fascinating tour of the winery and tasting. Our guide brought the whole story of Wiston alive and was so knowledgeable and entertaining. The tasting was the icing on the cake. A perfect way to spend a summer Saturday afternoon. July 2022.
