  • So You Want to Write a Novel?: Award-winning fiction author, Paula Roe, will not only cover the creative stuff (genre, plot, characters, conflict) but also the big-picture things (indie or traditional publishing, the business of writing, social media, marketing and agents) plus how to stay motivated in the face of rejection.
  • Design Skills for Entrepreneurs: It’s important to stand out from the competition, especially in the digital world. The way you present your business across your website, social media platforms as well as in printed material, effects the way people perceive your brand.

You will learn about different varieties of white and red wine, what each wine should taste like, its history and style.
  • Tech Savvy Seniors – Introduction to Transport Apps: Travel apps help change all this by making getting around by car and on public transport much easier, faster and potentially cheaper. You can think of an app as your personal travel agent.
  • How to Practice Mindfulness in Your Daily Life: Learn how to practice Mindfulness and how you can use the building blocks of Mindfulness to fully pay attention to what is happening in the ‘here and now’, instead of focusing in the past or future predictions. You will learn how to relate directly to whatever is happening in your life and be in charge of your own life better.
