Calling all coastal-dwelling writers!
The Ballarat Studios in North Shields is hosting an open evening for local writers on Thursday August 1st.
The event is FREE and aimed at writers of all persuasions who live in and around Tynemouth, Cullercoats, Whitley Bay and North Shields.
The evening will offer attendees the chance to meet other writers and discover what the newly-opened Arts and Performance venue on Borough Road can offer them this autumn.
