Welcome to Newham Writers – new writers welcome



Last updated 1st July 2022.

Summer Recess: We’re still in full swing, our last Thursday workshop of 2021/22 is on July 21st.

We’re back for our 2022/23 year from September 8th


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 including BAFTA winners, those nominated for the Children’s Book Award, TV writers, and independent authors publishing anything from fiction to biography.

We welcome all standards from published authors to enthusiastic beginners. While many of our writers are working towards being published or have already done so, many others come along to learn about creative writing and develop their skills, others come to simply enjoy a creative and social evening out amongst fellow local writers.


The ‘About‘ tab above explains what we do and how we support writers. To get in touch see the ‘Contact Us‘ tab, the first night is free so newcomers can try us first to see what’s going on and what we do. 

Genres range from romance to biography, from comedy to horror, from fantasy to thriller, from sci-fi to history. We have authors writing novels, poetry, life stories, novellas, short stories, song lyrics, blogs, screenplays and much more. 

To find our weekly workshops in Stratford, see the ‘Dates & Times’ tab above.
