Events & workshops

Every year, we run a series of workshops (free to attend) in the lead-up to our writing competition’s closing date.

We hope that these workshops will inspire, educate and inform everyone who attends. You don’t have to be entering a story in to our competition – anyone can come to the workshops – but of course we hope you will send in an entry too!

2018 Workshops

The HG Wells Short Story Competition are delighted to be able to offer occasional writing workshops in Folkestone for writers of all ages. Details of 2018 workshops will be available soon, so please keep an eye on this website and also on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.
