What we're about

Read Write Chat holds regular informal writing sessions for writers of all styles and abilities.

We begin by reading a piece of poetry or prose and discussing it before moving on to a writing exercise based on what we have just read. After about 20 minutes writing time there will be a chance to share and discuss what we have written. Following the session feel free to stick around to enjoy more conversation with members.

Other workshops, writing sessions and meet-ups at literary events in Norwich are also organised. All members are welcome to suggest activities.

Anyone who is interested in writing and meeting other writers and literary types is welcome to join.

There is a suggested annual membership fee of £5. If you attend more than two meet-ups please contribute to the group's running costs if you can afford to. Donations can be made via Paypal: paypal.me/PatrickWiddess (https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/my/profile)

Creative Writing Group

The Merchant's House

Stories, stories everywhere... until you put your pen to that blank piece of paper aaaand it's gone... Well it feels that way, sometimes. Ideas don't just come out of hiding. You have to tickle them. Poke them with a stick. Write, write and write some more. But write what, you say? Well, come along for a relaxed couple of hours of catching ideas, creative scribblings, writing prompts and friendly chat. Bring a net. No! Don't bring a net, bring a pen and paper, far more practical. There will likely be a theme, but I haven't decided on it yet. Grab your beverage of choice from the bar and look out for a bright blue, smiling flower. That's where we will be, from three. Space may be limited so it's best to arrive early. Please cancel your place if you can't come.
