Children, families, community

The Writers' Block is an inspirational writing and creativity hub for the whole community.

We have a programme of activities throughout the year that ranges from the authorial arts of drawing and illustration to creative writing, poetry and spoken word performance.

Little Story Seekers – a story, song and movement session for very young children and their parents and carers.

Young Writers – a friendly monthly group for young people with a love of creative writing to develop hone their skills.

Manga – a monthly after school group led by Manga Master Keith Sparrow.

Adult workshops – run by professional writers on a variety of themes.

Speakeasy – a space for writers to test out their work on a friendly audience, or just to listen to new talent.

Holiday activities – Story Adventurers for 5-8 year olds where children explore The Writers’ Block to discover the story and then create their own!
