** The Writers' Block Summer Events
** The Writers' Block has now moved out of The Ladder for a few months while some exciting renovations happen in the space. In the meantime we’ll be offering a slimline selection of events and workshops in the buildings of some of our partner organisations - we hope you’ll come and join us in these new locations!
** Queer Speakeasy
Thursday 27 June 7-9pm - The Hypatia Trust, Penzance

Join us for a Queer Speakeasy this Pride month! We’ll be sharing some of our own writing and talking about the characters and books from our childhood which helped us to recognise ourselves on our journey to understanding our queer identities.

** Getting Noticed Masterclass with Luke Thompson
3 July 10-1pm - Kresen Kernow, Redruth

Navigating agents and editors for the first time is daunting and can be confusing. What do they want? When do they want it? And what is a synopsis anyway? In this practical workshop we take a whistlestop tour of how works are pitched and commissioned to agents and editors, taking a look at what is expected and what is meant.
