Creative writing workshop session

  • Oct 9, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

London Writers' Cafe is a place for creative writers who want input on their work. We focus mainly on short stories and work-in-progress novels but we're open to hearing any form of creative writing!

Anyone can reserve a reading spot. In doing this, you'll have 10 minutes to read and then live feedback from the rest of the group for 5-10mins. If you are reading, please bring at least 10 copies for group members to share as this gives better feedback.

If you'd like to read please post a comment below to request your slot.

Costs: £3 per session; 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.

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

    Enjoyed it very much and enjoyed meeting everyone too. Look forward to future sessions. Just a shame some seem to clash with work shifts. :-/

    Great mix of people, styles and opinions, enabling focused feedback that was beneficial to hear and participate in, regardless of whether or not it was my work being discussed.

      I guess the ones on the waiting list can work out an honor system between themselves... Next spot to open up, Jennifer - you got it ;)

    Hi Laura. Yes, that's fine. We'll not put you in the hot seat until you request a spot to read. Cheers, L

    Hi Lisa

    I'm thinking of confirming for this date and might be bringing a guest who is a writer from outside London. Is it ok for guests to read?

    Cheers
