Every year, we run a series of workshops (often 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!
The HG Wells Short Story Competition are delighted to be able to offer occasional writing workshops in Folkestone and elsewhere for writers of all ages.

All are welcome, with tickets free to those 21 and under and £5 + Eventbrite fees for those over 21. Tickets must be bought / reserved in advance.
We also have a Writing Workshop “Writing with the Senses: Short Story Writing Workshop with Karen Ince” on Saturday 1st June 2019 at The Grand, Folkestone.
