We're an independent gallery bookshop based in Machynlleth, mid Wales. It's our blend of bookshop, selling a carefully selected collection of reads and pick-up-and-flick-through books – and gallery space to inspire you while you're browsing. We host events too, book readings, author talks, photography and art openings.

Tuesdays, monthly, begins 11 October
If you write, or would like to write, from life - memoir, biography, travel writing, nature writing, family history - come along to our monthly guided writing workshops in Pen'rallt Gallery Bookshop. (Bydd y sesiynau yn cael eu cynnal yn Saesneg, ond gobeithio y gall y cynghorion, technegau, ymarferion a syniadau gael eu cymhwyso i ysgrifennu mewn unrhyw iaith.)

  • Your tutor will offer tips, techniques and writing exercises.

  • Pen'rallt Gallery Bookshop will offer tea, biscuits and an inspiring environment.

  • Your fellow scribes will provide company, encouragement and new ideas.

Four monthly workshops on Tuesdays: 11 October, 8 November, 13 December 2016 & 10 January 2017
£10 per session (£36 for all four paid in advance).

Your tutor: Helen Pendry has taught writing in Higher Education for many years and has also worked as an associate editor. With the support of a Literature Wales bursary, she is currently working on a novel which combines historical biography and fiction.

N.B. The workshops are suitable for those who have attended the Life Writing 1 and 2 courses, as well as those who are new to life writing.
