The Hong Kong Writers Circle conducts writing workshops throughout the year to enhance the skills of budding writers and to provide a platform for experienced ones to share their secrets. These are available to both members and non-members, with members receiving a discount on the ticket price. They are usually conducted by member volunteers but guest-speakers have also been called upon for their expertise. These workshops focus on a specific topic e.g.: writing memoir or being a good critic, and often involve a range of exercises and activities that any writer at any level can participate in and benefit from. These guided exercises assist with honing a particular skill or serve to expose people to different writing methods that they may or may not have tried before. Light refreshments and some nibbles are usually available for participants and these events also double up as a great way to meet fellow writers!
