Welcome to Writing Room...

We’re really pleased you’re taking a look at what we have to offer, whether you’re just beginning your writing journey or are looking for support, expertise and camaraderie en route.

We’re all about giving you writing room in the way that works best for you. Many of our courses and drop-ins started life as suggestions from our students, so we know we’re delivering what writers need.

Our regulars tell us they love our courses and drop-ins because they’re a great balance of tangible advice, practical exercises and truthful feedback sensitively delivered – with lots of warmth, fun and laughter included too! Writing can be a solitary experience and finding room to share time and ideas with a like-minded community makes a world of difference.

We hope you enjoy exploring our website. If you need guidance, just drop Kate our Programme Director a line to find out more. You can email her here. She’ll ask a bit about your writing life to date so she can help suggest the right Writing Room home for you, wherever you and your words currently find yourselves. 


It's very comfortable to Zoom in while being in your own home. It was the most enjoyable thing I have done for a long time. It helped me to sound out my writing while being given constructive criticism.

It deals very well with the fact that classes are attended by complete beginners / novices and accomplished / experienced writers. I never feel judged and most of the examples and exercises are inclusive of minoritised community writers.

It feels like a writing community rather than separate courses. The costs are low compared with other options and I hope that means that it's more accessible. The mix of ages is good.
