The Brockworth Class ran from January 2014 to March 2019.

The classes covered various genres of writing, for example; Short Story writing including; very short stories of 500 words or less, humour, horror and writing for children.  We have also done some poetry and have written a script for a short play.  At each class I introduce a famous author or poet and read an extract of their work, sometimes adding an exercise of ‘writing in the style of’ and ending with a short biography of the author concerned.

On the 18th November 2017, Josephine Lay hosted a book event for four of her writers from her Brockworth Creative Writing Class at the Brockworth Community Centre.

The four writers (Alyson Joyner, Sarah Dalton, Michelle Hibberd & Don Jardine) read from their newly published books, with books available to buy and the writers available to sign copies.

It was a highly successful event with all the writers selling all their books on the night and taking orders for many more.
