Are you a fiction writer/author based in London searching a creative writing group of 3,300+ like-minded individuals? Congratulations. You've found it.

At its heart, London Writers' Cafe exists to give emerging fiction writers a place to get constructive feedback on their work.  Meetings happen regularly but you choose how often to attend (no pressure) in private function rooms close the these stations: Liverpool St, Holborn and Baker St. See what's up next in our calendar.

Note: LWC will pause on accepting new members once we reach 3,500 and this is why.

The way it works

Members volunteer in advance to read their unpublished work (normally a sample of 2,500 - 4,000 words) for live feedback in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. New members can choose to come along and just listen to others for a bit until they want to share their own (that's totally OK). I don't believe in groups where everyone is forced to contribute/offer feedback *shudder* 

Talks, Workshops & Socials

As well as feedback nights, I program a huge array of talks with leading publishing folk (including top Literary Agents and Editors), technical workshops (characterisation/voice/POV etc) taught by professional tutors and host memorable (I hope) social events on occasion. 

NB: We will be pausing on new memberships once the group reaches 3,500 members (just for a few months) so if you want to join, now's the time to apply.

Questions? Ideas? Suggestions? Do get in touch via email or Twitter.

Hope to meet you soon and happy writing!

Note: all requests to join are read by me so please fill out the profile questions so your request can be swiftly considered and approved.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
