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 of that year.

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 before the Pandemic, we worked from two venues - the inspiring North Bank House/Muswell Hill Methodist Church and the magical Green Shed, N10.

We moved our workshops online during the first lockdown in 2020. We now offer Space to Write Mondays & Free Flow Fridays weekly and Words & Wine fortnightly, on Wednesday evenings.

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. 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 work. The aim is for you to feel confident and energised with your writing. We are a writing community.

October 2021 Zoom Words & Wine Workshop - New Monthly Programme

Online event

£17.00

WORDS & WINE ON ZOOM
WEDNESDAY 27 OCTOBER 2021,[masked]pm
Special fee £17

Words & Wine Workshops moved over to Zoom in Spring 2020, when lockdown hit. Even when we return to venues, we will continue with our online programme. They have been very popular in lockdown and we love facilitating the W&W workshops.

The focus is on a fun evening with fast-paced creative writing exercises and no critique, while nibbling on cheese and sipping wine (these days, you are invited to bring your beverage & snacks of choice to the computer!).

You can share your work if you wish but there is no pressure to do so. There is a different Theme each time. All you need are notebooks and pens, you don’t need to prepare anything. You will leave with a toolbox of ideas and lots of writing motivation.

Zoom Words & Wine is being offered on a monthly basis from Autumn 2021 for just £17 each – still reduced from the pre-Covid rate of £30.

Words & Wine is often sold out, so we advise early booking. It’s a very cosy evening on Zoom (we receive bookings outside of Meetup too)!
Our groups are small & supportive, with a maximum of 10 participants.

This Words & Wine Workshop is on Wednesday 27 October 2021,[masked]pm and will be the first Autumn 2021 Workshop.

You can book here on Meetup or via our website. Zoom details will be sent on booking:
