Welcome to Newham Writers. Founded 1986

1 (3)

Hi, and welcome to our thriving creative writing group based in Stratford, East London. 

Many of our writers have published their work since we were founded in 1986, ranging from BAFTA winners to those nominated for the Children’s Book Award, from those writing for the stage to those publishing anything from fiction to biography.

Many others come along to sharpen their creative writing skills, to share their work with other writers, or simply to enjoy a social and creative evening out.


New members are always welcome, from creative writing beginners to published authors; just pop into any session to see what is going on, or get in touch via the ‘Contact Us’ tab above. The first night is free so people can try us out with no obligation or cost.

Genres can range from romance or sci-fi to comedy or fantasy, and can include poetry, novels, novellas, short stories, song lyrics, stage or radio drama, screenplays,  life stories, non fiction and much more. 

To find our weekly workshops in Stratford, see the Dates & Times Tab.



Our anthologies, Showtime 2017, 2018 and 2019 are available on Amazon Click HERE! Over 300 pages of poetry, short stories and more.
