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!

2017 Workshops

For junior writers, there will be a Creative Writing Workshop on Friday 30 June at the Harvey Grammar School, Folkestone. Further information will follow, but save the date!

More details of 2017 workshops will be available soon, so please keep an eye on this website and also on our Twitter and Facebook accounts.

We are happy to consider running group workshops across the South East. What sort of thing would you like to see covered? Email us at with your suggestions.
