WORKSHOPS (see also ‘Writing Days’ under ‘News’ for recently-arranged workshops in August.)

Writing from Life

Writing from Life groups are:

  • Friendly and supportive rather than competitive
  • We write on the spot so there is no homework but lots of laughter
  • We aim to enjoy our writing and time together
  • To grow in confidence through practice, through listening to and appreciating others’ writing and, in turn, through reading our own work out loud

The Thursday evening group meets at my house in mid-Surrey, 7.45--9.45pm, during the autumn and spring terms only. Dates for the spring term are 24 January to 21 March
 There are nine sessions at a total cost of £85. This will be our 19th year but inevitably some people leave and we always welcome new people, while keeping the group size to a maximum of 12.

If you are interested in  Writing from Life on a Thursday evening, email Chris

Write On

I also lead a Write On group for a limited number of people engaged in ongoing writing projects such as novels.
Each person emails to everyone else an extract of not more than 1500 words from their work in progress a week before we meet,  which is on a week-night evening about every six weeks. Then we all critique, inform, comment, spur on, add ideas - or whatever will help these writers who are in it for the difficult long-haul.

The group is full, currently - but if you are interested  email Chris  who will put you on a waiting list
