Welcome to What’s Not To Write

We are delighted to welcome you to What’s Not To Write. We hope you will treat this as your very own creative writing resource – a place to find support, advice, ideas, writing prompts and exercises, and details of our events. 

What’s Not To Write is a joint venture by writers Clara Challoner Walker and Janet Dean Knight who met on the MA Creative Writing at York St John University. Clara’s novel ‘A Tapestry of Vice and Virtue’ was published in February 2015. Janet’s poems are widely available in a magazines, competition anthologies and online, and she has just completed her first novel, The Peacemaker

Following the success of their first Summer Writing Retreat in the UK in June 2015, Clara and Janet are currently booking for their Spring 2017 Retreat in South West France. The location is the pretty village of Poumeroux, between Limoges and Angouleme, and the week will provide inspiration for new and developing writers.

We hope you will enjoy What’s Not To Write and leave us comments and feedback. Happy writing and we hope to meet you in future, both face to face and in the ether!

Best wishes

Janet and Clara
