About Creative Writes

About Creative Writes

Creative Writes teaches creative writing using small, supportive, motivational and tailor-made workshops.  We give you the time and space to write, guiding you through each writing task in a supportive, collaborative and fun way.

What We Offer

The focus of Creative Writes courses is on free flow writing, writing against the clock and without fear of the end product, focusing primarily on placing words on the page. Giving you space to write, space to be free to express.

Nichola Charalambou – Founder of Creative Writes

In addition to the regular workshops for adults I facilitate in Muswell Hill, N10, which form the foundation of Creative Writes and is where it all began – I also freelance for a range of organisations, delivering creative writing and poetry reading workshops.

In a typical week, I can be in a sheltered housing scheme, care homes, a few community centres and perhaps teaching a Skype class, a Masterclass and a small Creative Writes Workshop in my local area. Wherever I am teaching, whoever I am working with – my aim is to take the fear out of writing and to make it as accessible as possible.

I focus more on the process and enjoyment of the writing itself, rather than the polished end product and publication. The result of this is that the writing can be raw and full of surprises and helps develop our natural writing style. We all have something to say – whether it be in the form of life writing, poetry or fiction. I give you the space to do that.
