Some of the published books of our members

Hi… and thanks for popping by ……..we are a group of some 30 writers ranging from novices to published authors based in Stratford, East London. You can say hi to us here newhamwritersworkshop@gmail.com

So how to describe us? Friendly, sociable, supportive, non-judgmental, eclectic, encouraging, experimental, successful, open, urban, constructive, welcoming, a bit edgy at times, relaxed, a touch of nuttiness, diverse. Check the above to see us, the age range spans from 18-92, and genres vary across poetry, novels, drama, short stories, song lyrics, autobiographies, journalism, plays, history, and family memoirs. Themes 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.

Go to the About Us tab to find out more or to the How to Join tab to get in touch. You do not need to be a Newham resident to join.
