Enfield Writers Workshop

We are a group of aspiring writers who usually meet in Salisbury House in Enfield. Our members enjoy and are inspired by all forms of creative writing, ranging from novels and short stories to life writing, via poetry and plays.

Our aim is to encourage one another to write more, improve our technique and provide feedback in a supportive environment. There are no restrictions on genre, content, style or length

We meet once every fortnight and we switch between two different types of session. At some sessions we share and discuss each others’ work, providing constructive and honest feedback and exchanging ideas. It is not compulsory to bring work along for people to come along, but we do expect people to behave in a supportive and respectful way when providing feedback.

Our other sessions are Creative Writing Sessions – writing prompts in the form of words or pictures are provided, and attendees are given around half an hour to do some creative writing before sharing what they have written with the group if they want to.
