We're back in person at the beautiful Leather Exchange in London Bridge!
This is a MeetUp for writers and non-writers, alike.
It is a friendly writing workshop and social event.
Come in at 6:45pm; join us in the private function room upstairs; take a seat and let the waitstaff take your drink order (drink included), then say hello to some other friendly faces, before we start the workshop at 7:00pm.
In addition to the drink, there will be some FREE snacks and a FREE Penguin book for each person to take home and keep.
The idea behind this workshop is that the host will introduce you to some new, inspirational writing exercises, and you'll work - using a handout, the book provided, and some friendly writing games and prompts - to create aspects of your own story.
For this session, we'll also be deriving inspiration directly from Greek Mythology!
At 9pm, when the workshops finished, there will be an option for you to stay and socialise (if you feel like it), but there will be no pressure or expectation to do so!
If you want to make new friends, this event is for you. If you want to make forays into a new, serious piece of writing, this event is for you. If you just want to have a drink and surprise yourself doing something fun and spontaneous, this event is for you!
***ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY***
***THIS GROUP IS OPEN TO PEOPLE OF ALL LEVELS AND THERE WILL NEVER BE ANY PRESSURE TO READ YOUR WORK IN FRONT OF OTHER PEOPLE***
Any questions, please don't hesitate to text or WhatsApp on[masked].
Can't wait to see you soon.
***PLEASE NOTE: there is officially a no refund policy for this event. However, if you cancel a number of days in advance and we're able to refill your space, we will indeed refund you. Similarly, moving a cancelled RSVP over to a future event is contingent upon being able to refill the space that you vacate.

Whoever you are, JOIN US!
We're excited to be back in person, with semi-regularity this side of the pandemic.
Book your spot, then come along at 11am, Saturday 13th November, at the beautiful Finch's Pub in Old Street, in the private function room in their astonishing basement bar.
Spend a full day constructing a unique, exciting narrative, with inspiration from the city of London + a host of literary excerpts from authors discussing city life elsewhere.
We'll order breakfast. Then do some warm-up writing exercises. Eat our breakfast. Then have some teas/coffees. Then we'll settle in for a friendly, no-pressure writing workshop. Theme: the city and city life.
We'll give you plenty of breaks throughout the day.
What's more, we'll walk you through everything, step-by-step, with carefully designed exercises, to help you weave your own new piece of fiction. And you won't have to share or read out loud in front of the group (unless you feel like it!)
When we've got loads of writing done, we'll invite you to relax with a late afternoon drink in the pub upstairs.
+ We'll give you a free book!
If you haven't been to any of our sessions before, please feel completely free to join. We welcome everybody from every conceivable background, especially newcomers (only a small handful of the people in the class are likely to know each other - so there'll be new, friendly faces all around).
No pressure to read or share your work with the group.
No experience of writing is necessary.
The day of workshops includes:
A Finch's pub breakfast
A tea or coffee
2 x 2-hour writing workshops with surrealism as a theme
A late afternoon drink
A free book!
And lots of shared wisdom and expertise
+ the opportunity (and discipline) you need to write a brand new piece of fiction
Please don't hesitate to text if you have any questions - we'll be happy to help:[masked]
Join us for this free-to-attend evening event for writers, readers, and anybody else even vaguely interested in the arts.
Come along, buy yourself a drink and the bar, then chat to some fun, friendly, interesting people. No workshop, no pressure to introduce yourself to the group. Just mingling, drinking, and having a good time.
A great opportunity to feel inspired and share ideas, but also... don't worry if you're a complete beginner, you'll be in excellent company!
Can't wait to see you all there!
P.S. if you like us and like what we're doing, please pass on the message to your friends, family, and anybody else you think might like to attend - the more the merrier!
