Aoife Mannix

Here's a brilliant opportunity for writers in the Gosport area. (If you are local you might be interested in this writing group too)

"Writing Consultations – Gosport Discovery Centre
Friday 7 November: 6 sessions: 1-1.30pm  1.30-2pm  2-2.30pm  2.30-3pm  3-3.30pm  3.30-4pm

One to One discussion, advice and critique of your poetry or prose.

A unique, free, opportunity to get tuition, advice and critique on a sample of your writing from Gosport Gallery’s Writer in Residence, Aoife Mannix in these half hour bookable sessions.

Aoife Mannix is Gosport Gallery’s writer in residence, in association with their Artists Rifles exhibition. She has previously been writer in residence for BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live and the Royal Shakespeare Company.  She has published four collections of poetry and a novel. She is a creative writing tutor at the University of Westminster and Goldsmiths.

Aoife’s residency will run until mid December, working with a variety of groups from schools to gallery visitors, and supporting the local writing community.

These half hour sessions must be booked in advance by emailing .  They will take place at Gosport Discovery Centre. 
Please email including a Word document with a sample of four poems or 500 words from a short story or novel in progress which will form the basis for the session - thank you.  Please be assured this writing will only be shared with Aoife and not be passed on to any other third party.
You will then be emailed whether you have been successful and the time slot allocated. "
