Webinars and Events

Cancer Scribblers Writing Webinars

Cancer Scribblers webinars aim to help people living with and after cancer, and caregivers, to get into writing, hone your craft and share your story in your own way!

Free Introductory Video

This free introductory video aims to give you a flavour of what the webinars will be like and to introduce you to the world of writing about cancer. As well as explaining what to expect from future webinars, in this video, I also explain how we can practise self-care when writing, and introduce some of the writing forms and routes to publication.
