Creative Writes Courses 2019
Writing is all about telling a story in some way, isn’t it?
At Creative Writes, all of our workshops provide:
- Space to write
- An opportunity to write your legacy
- A chance to tell a story any way you wish – through prose, poetry, life writing or fiction
- A toolbox of ideas with which to continue your writing
- Teaching the process of free flow writing
The programme for 2019 includes:
- Words & Wine
- Space to Write Wednesdays
- Words from the Shed
We are also continuing with our one to one Masterclasses & Skype Workshops: Masterclasses & Skype Workshops are one or two hours and include all of the above, as well as a chance to focus on your own writing project if you wish – with guidance from Nichola.
Creative Writes offers creative writing courses in North London, with Space to Write Wednesdays, Blogging Workshops, Masterclasses, Skype Masterclasses and Words & Wine evenings. Themes change throughout the year, Masterclasses are one-to-one lessons in your own home or at an agreed venue at a time to suit you and other courses are run from North Bank house, Muswell Hill.
With no critique and no feedback, participants are encouraged to write their thoughts and stories freely. Browse our courses to see what’s coming up, as courses change regularly to keep our creative approach fresh.
Refunds & Cancellations Policy:
Creative Writes does not give refunds for booked course places. If you cannot make the event, and let Creative Writes know at least 48 hours beforehand, we will try to transfer your booking to another workshop, or you can arrange for a friend to come in your place. Thank you for your understanding.
Space to Write Wednesdays are available in Muswell Hill. Space to Write Wednesdays provide workshops with no feedback to allow you to write what you want and how you feel. Fun, eclectic, group writing activities are led by Nichola in the wonderful North Bank house.
Creative Writes runs regular Words & Wine evenings for writers. With a relaxed vibe, some wine and some cheese, Words & Wine evenings are held in a fab location in Muswell Hill. Places are limited, fun is had, words are written – more details are available here.
One to one Masterclasses are given by Nichola at an agreed venue. Learn how Nichola approaches each writing task as she guides you through the class. Topics can be chosen by you, or are given by Nichola. Make the most of your creative time with dedicated writing sessions to suit you.
Creative Writes Gift Vouchers are available to buy and can be used to book any of our courses, workshops or Masterclasses.
Skype Masterclasses are available for writers living further afield or who are too busy to meet in person. One hour sessions with Nichola over Skype give you the time and space to write your story into words.
Email or call Nichola for further details and map out your way forward to your creative writing goals.
We are very lucky to be able to use The Green Shed / Summer House in Muswell Hill, N10 for our Words & Wine Workshops. As the space is so inspiring, we decided to also make it our venue for Words From The Shed in the Summer of 2018. Throughout the Summer, Nichola went to The Green Shed for her space to write. There was no agenda. Nichola wrote to a range of writing topics & prompts – writing ‘in the moment’.

Hello, Welcome to Creative Writes & to Autumn, I have been writing this blog post in my head for quite...
What has the summer brought so far? I know it’s been a while since the last blog post. Sometimes, life...
What our participants say…
It brought back a lot of memories… Things I’d forgotten about. I enjoyed it all.
It was great Nichola! Hugged my soul.
I felt supported and encouraged and that you lived up to all your promises.
I confess I chose this course because of the ‘no feedback’ rule. It’s good to start building confidence.
The group dynamics were excellent and propelled me forward to take risks. The non-judgemental ground rules enabled us to develop a deep trust in the group very quickly which allowed us to explore and release deep emotions in our creative journeys.
I think these are techniques that could be useful on a lifelong basis – so I just wanted to thank you so much for Creative Writes. It’s the best.
Thanks for a great workshop on colour last night! I was amazed at how my writing came to life through using colour as an inspiration. It was as if the colour was an anchor, helping me to paint a very specific picture.At the same time, I was amazed how far we could go with a particular colour as a starting point .With colour as a doorway, I was able to include many levels of the imagination: memory, mythical stories, and collective associations. It was like opening a treasure box and discovering all sorts of wonderful things inside.
I feel exhausted but a real buzz after the session. It was so much more enjoyable and useful than I had anticipated (because of my own anxieties). Thank you for creating the safe environment that helped me to delve into my writing and experiences. The wonderful exercises were a real treat and eye opener.
