Writers in the Brewery is a ‘pop-in’ social session for everyone who is interested in writing. Poets, fiction writers, biographers and non-fiction writers – all are welcome.

Guest speaker/performer each month: an author, publisher, poet, journalist, musician or groups, who share their work and entertain us. Open ‘mic’ each evening for anyone to read and share their work.

It is an opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn about groups, competitions, classes and workshops and a chance to showcase your own work if you want to. So come along to share your work or just sit back, sip your drink and listen to others. 
 

Oct 31st  Writers in the Brewery Tuesday 31st October in the Café at New Brewery Arts, 7pm – 9pm.

Everyone is welcome. £4 entry includes free tea and coffee. Other drinks available at usual bar prices.
