Want to Write a Novel?

On Thursday evenings from 14th September to 19th October 2023, 7.30-9.30 pm in the small upstairs room in the Labour Club, Chapel Street, Mark P. Henderson will offer a 12 hour novel-writing course for £60, with a preliminary FREE two-hour session on Thursday 7th September to discuss your writing needs and aspirations.

A former hospital doctor and medical researcher, Mark retired to Glossop in 2002 and now enjoys a second career as editor, storyteller, author and creative writing tutor.

He has produced a dozen books, including six novels, through five different publishing houses. One of his publications, his collection of Peak District folktales, has been a best seller. He tells selections of these stories in storytelling gigs and on film.

Several of his current creative writing students have now published books of their own.

Interested? Contact Mark at or on 07397 164551.

Please note that places on the course are limited!
