Creative Writing Workshop

  • Sep 29, 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.

    Wow - I joined this meetup group nigh on two years ago and Monday 29/09 was my first time at the cafe. I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt deeply inspired and motivated by what I saw and heard, and I'm totally looking forward to the next one....And maybe I'll read if there's space...eek!
