Northern Writers Studio bring writers together through workshops and events to provide encouragement to those with literary endeavours. They have some great opportunities for newcomers and experienced writers alike, whether you’re looking to develop your writing abilities, or just want to try something new.

Every month they work with a Northern writer to deliver an inspiring workshop and on Wednesday 17th March they are collaborating with the brilliant novelist, performer and storyteller Sarah Dobbs. The workshop will introduce writers to methods used to create work for performance, using these methods to reconsider approaches to prose.

There is also a spoken word event on Wednesday 10th March in aid of East End Women, hosted by Bridget Hamilton and Sarah Davy from Northern Writers Studio itself. With open mic slots available, this is an event worth taking part in.

If you’re looking for something more regular, Northern Writers Studio meet every Friday and Sunday at 10am for their Write-In sessions. These free sessions bring writers together (via Zoom) to participate in a relaxed, communal writing experience. Whether you’re writing fiction, non-fiction, or planning submissions – everyone is welcome.
