Creative Writing Workshop

  • Feb 24, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • Shooting Star pub

Join us for a night of creative writing revelry.

These workshop nights are aimed at writers of all forms - novels, short stories, plays, poems - everyone is welcome. They're relaxed, friendly and the format is simple; up to 25 can attend and six of those people volunteer to read their work for applause, discussion and feedback.

To read on the night, you must request a place in advance.

Request a reading slot by posting a comment below. Slots are assigned in order of first come, first served. A reading slot allows you 10 minutes to read and then 5-10 minutes for comments and questions from the group.  If you are reading, please bring at least 10 copies to share as you'll get better quality feedback.

Please note: Reading slots are very popular but if you scroll ahead in our calendar you'll find a night in a few weeks with places open.

If you can no longer make it, please, please, please change your RSVP. We often have a waiting list of people who REALLY want to attend, so please change your RSVP so others can take the spot.

Cost: £5 per person. Please follow the steps to pay via PayPal when you RSVP. Refunds will only be offered if the meetup is cancelled.

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

Directions: Take the Bishopsgate exit from the main rail concourse, cross the road, turn right at Dirty Dicks pub onto Middlesex Street. The pub is just a few minutes down on the right-hand side and we meet in the function room downstairs.

      Oo thanks Claire! It's called Litro magazine - they do themed issues and there's one coming up called "Fairer Sex" so it'll be online as part of that. He said he had edits too, so it'll be interesting to see what he comes back with... x
