The council is targeting children in care and young carers for the workshops, run with Cyprus Well and the Read/Write South West project.
Deborah Gregory, who has been published by both Picador and Macmillan, and Forest of Dean author Annie McKie will be running the Young Writers' Squad workshops at the library.
Sunday and Monday evenings £12.00 per head for an all inclusive meal with Indian and Thai cuisine (normal price £14.50).
Bring this voucher to the restaurant complete with your name and email address on it.
Terms: Expires 31st July
Contact: 01452 223782

Youngsters can start blogging, write poetry or just improve their English homework.
There will also be chance to talk to the authors and ask questions about their experiences.
The first session will be held from 10.30am until 1pm.
Weekly sessions will continue at Cinderford library for eight weeks.
Council leader Mark Hawthorne said: "These workshops are a great idea and should help children and young people develop a love of reading and writing."
