What we're about

Creative Writes has been providing regular creative writing workshops across London since 2009. We had a wonderful year of celebrating our tenth Birthday in 2019, including a very special Words & Wine evening in March.

The groups provide a welcoming and supportive environment for writers at all levels, giving you space to write.

We are based in Muswell Hill, North London and work from two venues - the inspiring North Bank House/Muswell Hill Methodist Church (Space to Write Workshops) and the magical Green Shed, N10 (Words & Wine and Words From The Shed).

You do not need to prepare anything before attending. All you need is an open mind and your favourite notebook & pens!

The workshops are for anyone aged 18 and over.

Nichola is the group facilitator and will guide you through a series of fast paced creative writing exercises.

The groups are small, supportive, motivational and tailor-made (maximum of 10 people for Space to Write and 12 for Words & Wine). We begin by developing our own voice & stories. The focus is not on critique but on the writing itself - exploring and enjoying the process.

You will leave with a tool kit of ideas with which to develop your writing. You will leave feeling more confident and energised about your writing. We are a writing community.
