Creative Writing Workshop (South location)

*This meeting has been moved to July 29*

Join in for a night of creative writing revelry. These workshop nights are suitable for writers of all forms - novels, short stories, plays - 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 with 6 places at each meeting. 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 and notes on the pages.

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.

Costs: £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 Three Stags, 67-69 Kennington Rd, London SE1 7PZ

    Thank you all very much for the helpful feedback last night. Made my first reading a lot less scary and daunting than anticipated!!

    Hi, sorry for late cancellation but still at work and been here since yesterday afternoon, so not in best mindset for it tonight. Hope someone else can take place. When is next one in this location though?

    Can I put myself forward?

  • Kat S.

    Sorry to complicate matters, but I've got a reading spot tomorrow night that I no longer need as my project changed somewhat over the weekend. I'm still coming, but could my spot go to someone else?

    July 28, 2014

    • Lisa G.

      Yes, that's fine. Thanks Kat.

      July 29, 2014

    • Lisa G.

      Kat's out so there is one spot going tonight. First to reply to this comment gets it! Thanks.

  • Jennifer

    Hi Lisa, I'm not sure if I have the reading spot I requested - a bit confused by the message board! Could you please let me know so I know whether to print off a story? Thanks, Jen

    July 28, 2014

    • Lisa G.

      Yes, you do have a spot - confirmed list is in my last message. Best, Lisa

    I'll be along tomorrow (29th). I know the Three Stags as some people from my writing group from Morley College - just round the corner - go there frequently. Check out the Charlie Chaplin snug.

    Hi - noticed that someone has dropped out - I'll bring a copy of my fundraising book in case there's a spare slot - thanks.

    Hi, am looking forward to coming along to my first meet. Have just completed a fundraising book, so be good to get some feedback and if there's a slot I could read one of the short stories or one of the poems - thanks.

    July 25, 2014

    • Lisa G.

      Sorry Robert, but all the reading spots are booked up for this meeting but I'd encourage you to come along to see how we run before you read. Best, Lisa

      July 27, 2014

  • Gareth S.

    Hello. Don't know if there is a reserve list for reading I could be added to (I think you are booked up)? I have a short story I'd like to read. Not a problem if not though, I'll try and nab one for the group on the 12th Aug.

    July 18, 2014

    • Lisa G.

      Yes, spot to read is yours.

      July 20, 2014

  • Catherine E.

    Ah boo, just realised this clashes with a work leaving do I can't miss, but will keep my eyes peeled for the next southern meet-up!

    July 8, 2014

  • Catherine E.

    Confused - is this on Tues 29th or Weds 30th? The above says Tues 29th or Weds 29th. Also has directions to the Shooting Star, not the Three Stags! And now Lisa's message below says it's being rescheduled...or has it already been rescheduled?! Once clarified I'm up for coming, this is a much better location for me than East London!

    July 6, 2014

    • Lisa G.

      Hi Catherine, it's definitely on the 29th and at the three stags. Sorry for the confusion - I've had issues with my schedule this month. Best, L

      1 · July 6, 2014

  • Lisa G.

    Hi all, sorry but I'm going to have to reschedule this meeting to the following week as I'll be away! I'll move it and then you can decide if you want to stay in or get a refund. Apologies, Lisa

    June 28, 2014

    • Rhiannon H.

      Hi Lisa, I can't make the 29th, could you issue a refund please? Also, I guess that frees up a reading spot!
