Looking for inspiration? Want to rediscover your creative side? Read about our new workshop 'Writing Parenthood' coming soon

Did you used to write but now can't find the time? Do you find being a parent inspiring but are too tired to take time out to think and reflect on why and how? Would you like to pick up a pen again or perhaps for the first time? 
Before my children came along I used to enjoy writing very much. When inspiration struck I would sit down and write and also attended some really great creative writing classes at City Lit and Birkbeck. Since becoming a mother I've found it hard to find time to write and also found that motherhood seems to have drained my creativity. With this in mind I spoke to Nicola Charalambou, the founder of Creative Writes and we came up with the idea of a writing course for parents that will allow us to explore the life-changing experience of parenting through our writing and also gently encourage our creative sides to re-emerge (if, like me you've found this an issue).   

North London Mums and Creative Writes bring you - 'Writing Parenthood' a workshop at North Bank house, Muswell Hill, N10. Tuesday 13th March 2012, 8pm -9.30pm.
Join Nichola Charalambou, the founder of Creative Writes for a new workshop at the inspirational North Bank house - where we will use creative writing to explore the experience of becoming a parent.
Creative Writes workshops use a particular approach - where a series of timed free flow exercises are used and there is no feedback on the writing. This will be explained in the workshop but essentially it is to enable us to judge our own work and develop our writing style. No previous experience of writing or writing workshops is necessary. 

For information and booking contact Nichola Charalambou on 07941 091 313 or email creativewrites@hotmail.co.uk or  info@northlondonmums.com.

Places cost £20 and are very limited to keep this intimate and unintimidating so get in touch quickly if you want to take part.

We hope that this will be the first of an ongoing series of workshops that allow parents to reconnect with their creative selves!
