Francesca and Susanna are Writers Together

Writers Together was established by two authors, Francesca and Susanna, based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Coming together with a common love of writing and wellness, they decided that they wished to develop their passion and create a community for other writers. Their aim is to provide education and knowledge of writing related topics through printed form, workshops, speaking events and courses to both individuals and groups. All levels and standards of writers are welcome as they want to encourage all writers without fear of criticism and rejection. They believe writing can be used as a tool to help with emotional wellness and developing strong, personal growth. With their vast experience, qualifications and knowledge Francesca and Susanna are able to deliver this vision to a vast audience, both in the UK and internationally, by providing physical and online workshops.
