Event Details

Join renowned writer, creator and teacher Barbara Slade for an inspirational writing masterclass, held in the beautiful surroundings of Regent's University.

This fun, but intensive, workshop is for anyone who wants to write, but doesn't know where to begin. During the day, you'll learn about where great stories come from, discover the important elements that make up a powerful story, and learn tricks on how to become, and stay, creative.

The day includes lunch and refreshments.



When I was a child, I struggled with learning to read. I had a great imagination and loved to tell stories, but as with many creative people, I was dyslexic. If anyone had asked me if I could one day be a professional writer, my answer would have been, “Not in a million years.”

Yet here I am and I promise you, if I can do it, so can you.

This is the workshop of my heart and the one that in many ways I’m most excited about. My plan is to help you believe in yourself and teach you all the ‘tricks’ that I’ve invented along the way that have allowed me to conquer my fears and become the writer I am today.

If you don’t believe you could be a writer, then this workshop is definitely for you. There’s a writer inside us all, and your story deserves to be told.

I will show you how and that is a promise.

To ensure the best experience, numbers of participants will be limited, so please book your place early to avoid disappointment.


During the day you will...
• Learn where great stories come from.
• Discover how to overcome fear and writer’s block.
• Learn tricks on how to become, and stay, creative.
• Find out how to control your inner judge, and then ‘hire’ him as your editor.
• Learn the important elements that make up a great story.
• Learn a solid, step-by-step system of baby steps, from idea to final draft.
• Discover how to become a writer in just 10 minutes a day.
• Set reachable goals and learn to congratulate yourself.
• Where to go from here? How writing will change your life.


This workshop is for anyone who wants to write, but doesn’t know where to begin.


The workshop will take place in the beautifully inspiring Knapp Gallery at Regent's University, which is located in the lush surroundings of Regent's Park.
