About the workshop
Anyone who is serious about their writing needs to get involved in puzzle solving, especially cryptic crosswords. The workshop will explain why in detail, but suffice to say that they teach you to express yourself in new and different ways.
And isn’t that what good writing is really all about?
This is not going to be a sit-back-and-snooze session, as you will be creating your own puzzles from scratch, with grids that the presenter himself has used hundreds of times – the very ones that have made him independently wealthy (independent, at least).
In closing, do you want to know what WCDR executive is revealed in this “poetic” cryptic clue: Rush forth, longer embracing love?
Find out when you attend. He may have a cryptic clue just for you, too.
