The Mummy Writes downloadable 6-week course

Mummy Writes help new parents get creative and have a taster of what it’s like to be a fiction writer all while snuggling with their baby.

Their 6-week course is a chance for new parents to get creative and begin to write while snuggling with their baby from the comfort of their own home.

Designed for tired brains and multi-tasking parents, it will help you to be able to write around the chaos that having children brings and find your creativity.

Explore the basics of writing fiction – from descriptions to building characters – and start writing a story of your own.

Read examples of great fiction, and participate in a series of short writing exercises with prompts designed to get you putting pen to paper and creating the first draft of a short story.

Suitable for first-time writers or those looking to refresh their writing skills after a break.

Blue Monday Quiz Night – Mind Fundraiser

Social Isolation is a way to bring some games, laughter and friends to your living room, while raising money for amazing causes.

Join us on, technically, the most depressing day of the year (the last Monday in January before payday) for our fun filled, blues forgetting quiz!

We’re doing the quiz for 2 reasons. Firstly, I want to bring some much needed January joy to you all! Secondly, I want to raise as much money as I can for the charity Mind (https://www.mind.org.uk). However; I know times are very tough for many people, so if you cannot afford to donate, PLEASE STILL COME! This is just as much about spreading joy as it is about raising money.

Other than the £10 it costs me to put on the quiz, 100% of the donations will be going to Mind, so please give generously.

To sign up to play, please donate to the below PayPal pot (if you can) and then email enjoysocialisolation@gmail.com to let us know you have and so I have your email address. I will email you the details on how to join the quiz a few days before the event.


Cannot wait to see you all there!

Find out more information on the Facebook event page.

Date: Monday 18th January 2021
Time: 7:30pm to 9:30pm

The Lockdown Comedy Guide

Due to only being able to work on the events website in my spare time, I couldn’t possibly bring you all of the amazing comedy taking place during lockdown. This is why I highly recommend you take a look at The Lockdown Comedy Guide.

They provide listings for all the standup (and standup-adjacent) online events happening during the lockdown. These are live events only, no pre-recorded events. There are events happening every day so if you like comedy, check them out 🙂
