Activities

Established for a year now, Write Club has built up a loyal cohort and new members are always welcome. This friendly creative writing group is a place to bring along work to discuss amongst peers and is led by author Amy Mason. The format is loose, but sharing work of all genres and supportive critical discussion are central to the proceedings.

Creative writers of all levels and disciplines are welcome, as are artists who use text in their work.

To join, ema­il a­dmin@spikeisla­nd.org.uk with a­n ex­ample of your work ­and a­ little bit a­bout yourself.
