Next Meetup

Regular Wednesday Writing & Social (Newbies Welcome)
Get your kids book written! This is an un-hosted meetup for anyone who wants to come and write for a couple of hours in the company of other kids writers. It's a great way to move your project forward in a lovely arty atmosphere. The only rules are to say hello to other writers and leave them to work until 8:30 when you are free to have a chat. If you're by yourself, don't worry. You'll get two hours of writing closer to your goal. Enjoy and Write Write Write!

What we're about

We are a London-based group for both established and aspiring children's book authors designed to support and inspire. We host regular writing meet-ups in lovely quiet London locations to help you get those words down.

These are free to attend - all we ask is that you are quiet for the 2-3 hour writing period. After that, do stay for a drink and a chat to get to know your fellow authors. There's no formal sharing of work, but feel free to talk about your writing project - us children's book writers tend to be a helpful, generous and constructive bunch!

We hope you'll join us on our trips throughout the year to events such as the Hay Book Festival, the Edinburgh Book Festival and the Bath Children's Literature Festival (a personal favourite). We also plan to organise some week-long writing retreats both in the UK and France so watch this space. Happy writing!
