Wild Fires – October Writing Workshop


Tuesday 28th October, 11am – 2pm.

The second Writers’ Workshop in Caldmore Community Garden looks towards winter, with its shorter days and colder nights, and the fires we burn to keep our spirits bright. We will explore the theme and the garden in relation to each other, and also bring our own thoughts and experiences of the ways we have found to bring light to dark days.

Once again this is a self-contained workshop, free of charge, and writers in any genre and of any experience are welcome. For those who intend to come to more than one workshop, it can be used to develop and add to a growing body of work. If you wish to book, please email David Calcutt at:

We will spend about an hour in the garden, and then walk to the White Lion pub, just five minutes away, where the landlord, Colin, will be waiting to greet us with his hearty and very reasonably priced lunch menu. The workshop will continue during and after lunch. In the case of very bad weather the first hour of the workshop will take place in Caldmore Village Hub, in Caldmore Green, just a few minutes walk from the garden.

Caldmore Community Garden can be found in Carless Street, Caldmore, Walsall, which is off Bath Road, facing Caldmore Primary School and backing onto St. Michael’s Church. The postcode is WS1 3RH. There is some parking outside the garden. For those using public transport, the bus number 4M leaves from Bradford Place bus station and takes you to Caldmore Green. The garden is about 3 minutes walk from there. If you’re coming by train and bus, let me know, and I’ll arrange to meet you at Caldmore Green.
