At Chalk the Sun we recognise that people write for different reasons, from fun to publication. If you have an 80,000-word draft that needs reworking and completing, we can support you and link you with the relevant expert on our team. If you want to play with words, experiment with ideas and create stories from your experience, there’s a Chalk the Sun workshop for you.

We won’t guarantee that you’ll be published in six months (though it has happened!). We will guarantee that you’ll meet people who share your desire to express yourself in writing, that you’ll get loads of friendly, professional advice, and that you’ll become a better writer.

Flexible workshops for you.
Study in a small group, complete focused writing exercises, analyse extracts from contemporary and classic writers, share your work and receive feedback from professionals. The class often continue over a drink or some food in the bar next door. Check out our:  evening and Saturday monthly, come-when-you-can workshops.
