What you'll do

Our environment has a huge influence on our creativity. Environments that encourage creativity are those that focus on comfort, colour, space and lighting. So how about Bristol Museum & Art Gallery as a spot to get those juices flowing!

What to expect:

  • Prompts to stimulate your powers of observation and encourage your imagination
  • Tips to add to your toolbox of writer's craft
  • The chance to get inspired by your artistic surroundings
  • Time to share your work and writing experiences
  • A friendly opportunity to get together with other writers
  • Step away with a fresh perspective and new ideas
