Welcome to Newham Writers. Founded 1986

1 (3)

Hi, and welcome  to this 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 improve, to share their writing, or simply because they want a creative social night out!


New members, from beginners to published authors, are always welcome to pop into any session to try us out with no obligation.

Genres can include poetry, novels, short stories, song lyrics, drama for radio or the stage, screenplays,  life stories, non fiction and more. 

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



Our latest anthologies, Showtime 2017 and Showtime 2018, are available on Amazon Click HERE! Over 300 pages of our author’s poetry, short stories and more.

Showtime 2019 is currently being prepared; due out September 26th!
