Creative writing workshop

  • This location is shown only to members

London Writers' Cafe is a community for writers who want input on their work. The majority of our group are writing short stories and their first novels but we're open to hearing any form of creative writing - plays, poetry, scripts - all welcome.

Anyone coming to a meeting can reserve a reading spot but there's only enough time for six readers at each one. Being a reader means you'll have ten minutes to read your piece and then roughly another ten minutes for constructive critique, comments and questions on your work from the group. If you'd like to read please post a comment below this description to request a slot. We'll always confirm readers a week or so before the meeting.

If you are reading, please bring at least 10 copies to be shared as you'll get more thorough feedback. We encourage all members to read but there will never be any pressure to do this until you feel ready.

Please note: Due to time limits, there are only only six slots per meeting so please check before you book, by reading through the comments below, if all the slots have been taken. We're very popular so it's very wise to book early if you want to read.

Hopefully that covers everything you'll need to know but for any burning questions, please email us.

Costs: £5 per session; please pay by PayPal when you RSVP.

Location: The Shooting Star is less than 5mins walk from Liverpool Street station, on the central Line. See google maps for details.

Take the Bishopsgate exit from the main rail concourse, cross the road, turn left at Dirty Dicks pub onto Middlesex Street. The pub is about 100 metres down on the right-hand side, past Nandos, and we meet in the function room downstairs.

      Hi Zoe, sorry to be a pain, but I've just realised that the following Tuesday is the 19th and is my friend's birthday, so I won't be able to attend.

    Dear Lisa,

    I apologise for not being able to attend this time due to a sensitive condition. May I reserve my payment for the next meeting?

    Sorry again for the short notice it is out of my control.

    Best,
    Badria

    Hi all - many apologies for the last-minute notification, but I'm afraid I won't be able to make this. My dad's not too well and in the general associated running around I'd completely forgotten the meeting was this evening. Really sorry and hope you all have a great discussion.

    • Amir L.

      Hi Lisa, I'll give it a go at reading, I don't have a book or anything, just off the cuff thinking that I post to my blog if that's okay?

    Sorry I can't join you all on the 12th. I've been looking for a chance when I'm free - for long enough to travel down from NE Essex and back - but I have an evening meeting.

    Is it insanely early to be asking for a reading slot for this? I hope to have knocked a chapter or short story into shape for public consumption by then, and will have attended a couple more workshops
