We’re a creative community of all ages, abilities, and skill-sets. Passionate about supporting writers, we cater for all sorts: fiction, poetry, memoir, scripts, blogging, journalism, copy, about any type of writing you can imagine.

Our workshops dive into a diverse array of subjects, from basic plot structures to genre specific masterclasses – and that’s just for fiction! We create our quarterly programmes by listening to what our members would like to see.

We provide our members with opportunities to network – in person, or remotely – whether you’re seeking a critique group to get feedback from or just someone to have a cuppa with.

Or maybe you just need a home away from home to come along to and get work done! Whatever it is you want to get out of your writing, we’re here to help.
