Creative Writing Group

Encourage your creativity and restart your love of creative writing with our new peer-led creative writing group.

This peer led group will meet regularly via Zoom to flex their writing muscles. Using prompts and exercises, we will work in a supportive atmosphere to improve our writing skills in many areas of Creative Writing. Topics we may look at could include character development, point of view, writing poetry, short stories, dialogue and narrative structure. You can also have the golden opportunity to workshop a piece of writing; getting constructive and detailed feedback from group members on the nitty gritty of your writing.

Although the group will be peer-led, we may also invite occasional guest drop-in tutors to add extra impetus and direction. Please express your interest by emailing See more at
