There are two types of workshops that are active at the moment:

  1. Online writing workshops are sometimes posted in this group and people work either individually or together to develop their work in a safe space.  
  2. Interactive online writing workshops are offered on Wednesday from 2pm to 3pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.  This is a small group of people who are actively working on their writing skills.  If you are interested please send a message to us through the Writing Through Fences facebook page ,  through our website contact or to Janet Galbraith via facebook
