Martin will definitely NOT be doing any WORKSHOPPING, or anything that could be remotely defined as WORK in any way...what he WILL be doing is spouting stupid stories, doing dodgy drawings and generally making a total fool of himself. Psycho humpback whales, unsafe yoga, failed Scouse prison escapes and international celebrity co-writing tips will be blended in a session of cleverly disguised writing and illustrating genius.
