Join us on the beautiful Artisplein for an afternoon writing session. Maybe it’s just the motivation you need to jump-start progress on your story/poem/novel or get going on something new. (You can see pics from previous write-togethers in our album: https://tiwc.eu/photos.)

Not sure what you’d like to write? No problem. We’re happy to provide you with an exercise selected just for you to get your imagination revving. So charge up your laptop or grab your pen and paper and come on over. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the forecast, and if it's too cold or wet, our plan B is to meet at The Birdhouse (Plantage Middenlaan 46) just across the road from the Artisplein.

We’ll provide a few snacks and a cash bar with wine, beer and juice (small change appreciated :). The last hour is for socialising, but if you're on a roll, you can just keep on writing.

Upcoming courses: If you're interested in improving your skills, exercising your creativity and building a writing community, consider one of our spring 8-week courses. You can join in Amsterdam, The Hague or online: https://tiwc.eu/courses

• More about us: We've been teaching fiction and poetry workshops in Amsterdam since 2011 and formed the International Writers’ Collective in early 2017. Our teachers are not just great writers, they're great teachers. They've been selected for their exceptional insight, warmth, and ability to inspire and engage writers in learning. Our curriculum goes beyond the traditional workshop model to offer a structured education in writing. We're the only international programme in the Netherlands to offer four levels of workshops, and we use methods and cover material similar to what you would find in a 2-year MFA programme. If you already have a degree in creative writing or have taken numerous technique-focused workshops, contact us and we’ll help you find the right level. Private coaching also available.
