Are you anywhere near North London, and interested in meeting other writers?
Along with Olga Gridina, I co-host Chalk Scribblers, a writers’ group in Kentish Town. We’re as eclectic a bunch as you’d expect to find throwing words at paper or screens, and currently include people writing novels, short stories and screenplays. Our experience level varies from published novelists to complete beginners.
Feel free to drop in if you’re looking for a writers’ group, or if you’re visiting London and would like to meet some kindred spirits.
We’re under the umbrella of Write Together, in which writers gather in various cafés around London and simply write. We’ve extended the original format by exchanging critiques after the writing session.
We meet at the Natural Coffee Lounge in Kentish Town (NW1 9QB) from 10am-midday every Saturday morning. Then we move a few doors down Kentish Town Road to the Abbey Tavern for the critiquing session and social.
We’re a few minutes’ walk from Kentish Town station on the Northern Line and Thameslink, or from Kentish Town West Overground station.
There are more details on both groups on group’s Facebook page and on the Meetup website, which generates a new page for each meeting. Search Meetup for Chalk Scribblers to find the page for the next meetup, or email me through the contact form on this website. You are welcome to just turn up but we’d appreciate it if you could drop me a line through this site so we don’t miss each other.
