Please note that all Newham Writers face to face sessions are postponed until the ‘all clear’ siren is sounded. Stay safe, be kind, and see you soon. And don’t panic! 

However … production of the 2020 Showtime anthology is continuing as normal, the deadline for contributions from members and associates is 31st March. Also, all members have been sent details of online interactive workshop meetings that will take the place of our usual sessions.


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.

As well as wanting to be published, others come along to sharpen their creative writing, to share their work, or simply to enjoy a social evening out.


New members are always welcome, from beginners to published authors; just pop into any session to see what’s going on, or get in touch via the ‘Contact Us’ tab above. The first night is free so people can try us out first.

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

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