Twilight Creature Double Feature: Writing with Bats

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a bat? Zipping through the balmy summer evening catching insects on the wing, or returning from a night’s foraging at dawn and collecting your pup from the creche tree to feed them. Bats are the only flying mammals in the world and possess amazing senses. In this workshop we will explore how thinking like a bat can enrich our writing. 

This event is part of our Twilight Creature Double Feature, an evening of themed sessions, embracing the animals of early evening. Sign up for one or both sessions to learn the lessons of badgers and bats. Register for Badger as Mentor here.


  • When: Thursday 18 July, 7.30–8.30pm
  • Where: Online
  • With: Jessica Obersby
