Creative Writes Themed Workshops are small, supportive, motivational & tailor-made. This means that there are no more than ten in each of our groups, no feedback on the writing and lots of fast paced exercises to get you going. We give you the time and space to write.

Held in the wonderful North Bank house, Muswell Hill N10 1PP, refreshments and inspiration are provided. The times for all evening workshops – Themed and Blocks, are 7.30-9.30pm.

Nichola leads the workshops, allowing participants space to write. Select from the list of themed workshops below…

The workshops will be held at our regular venue in central Muswell Hill, N10 with good transport links and free parking. Full details will be sent on booking.

There is a maximum of ten people in Creative Writes group workshops – we work with writers at all levels and there is no critique on the work. You will be guided through a series of fun, fast paced creative writing exercises.




The cost of this workshop is £40.00.

26th APRIL 2017 – Colour as writing inspiration

We are delighted to announce the return of our popular Themed Creative Writing Workshop – Colour As Writing Inspiration.

As with all Creative Writes Workshops, we will start with ourselves – developing our own voice. We will also take inspiration from the world around us and published poetry/quotes etc. Colour is a wonderful way in to writing. By focussing on colour, we notice the world around us and it can trigger forgotten experiences as well as enhance existing work.

Participants have very much enjoyed this workshop; “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 know that the techniques we explored will be very useful in my writing!”     (DCB)
