'Yours sincerely' programme will help you rediscover the joy of letter writing

Yours Sincerely is a free online creative writing course that will help you to rediscover the simple joy of telling a story through handwritten letters.

How will the programme work?

-- Award-winning author Jan Carson will deliver a series of writing workshops designed to help you tell the story of a voice from the past by writing letters from their perspective

-- Develop skills in story-telling, memoir, narration & characterisation and share letters with others in the group

-- You will receive a bundle of 1st class stamped envelopes at the beginning of the course to help you take part.

-- This course will be interactive, fun and informative and is particularly geared towards beginner writers and people who really enjoy a good story. Please bring writing materials along with you


This programme is FREE and open to anyone based in Northern Ireland or border counties. The programme will take place from 10am to 11.30am every Monday from 14th September to 19th October.
