Are you a fiction writer/author based in London searching a creative writing group of 3,000+ like-minded individuals? Congratulations. You've found it.

London Writers' Cafe is a fiction writing group where members volunteer to read their unpublished work for instant feedback in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. So, if you want help in moving forward, join us for regular critique sessions, publishing talks, writing workshops and socials. For what's up next, see our calendar, or read what others are saying in our latest reviews.

As for sharing your own work, that only happens once you feel ready; with us, you'll never be pressured to share anything, or offer feedback, until you volunteer to do so. In our format, pieces work best if they are 3,500 words or less - or take less than 10 minutes when read aloud. Although, we do offer intensive sessions for longer pieces, or those wanting more rigorous feedback. Meetings happen 4-6 times a month in venues close the these stations: Liverpool St, Holborn, Baker St, Loughborough Junction.

Questions? Do get in touch via email or Twitter.

Hope to meet you soon and happy writing!

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular advice and events.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
