The writer-in-residence for the Crossing the Tees Book Festival, Tracey Iceton, is to host a series of writing workshops.

The sessions have been organised to assist people who wish to take part in the annual event’s first ever short story competition.

The competition is free to enter, open to anyone aged 16 or over and the story should be on the theme of ‘Crossing the Tees’. Prizes are £100 for first, £75 for second and £50 for third.

Writing workshops with Tracey Iceton are £3 per session and in Middlesbrough will take place at Hemlington Community Hub from 10am-noon on Tuesdays, June 27, July 4 and 11. For more information or to reserve a place call 01642 591918.

The workshops will cover creating characters, plotting stories, establishing narrative, structure, dialogue and developing descriptions.
