Newham Writers is friendly, supportive, non-judgmental, eclectic, experimental,  open, urban, a bit edgy at times, relaxed with a touch of quirkiness, and  successful. Check the above tabs to see the diversity. We welcome authors writing poetry, novels, drama, short stories, song lyrics, autobiographies, journalism and so on.

Themes can range from fantasy to thriller, from satire to surreal, from comedy to romance – we are not about boundaries. We are about the unheard voice, about helping the writer to say what they want to say, to write what they want to write, and to get it out there.
