Over 2024, we’re looking to build stronger ties through writing and reading.

As such, we’re going to be running a series of online feedback groups from mid-March/April. These will be small groups, facilitated by us, offering feedback on the writing of two or three members each week.

Our aim is for these groups to help writers build connection and make friends with whom they continue working.

Additionally, we’ll be running some close reading groups, analysing and discussing short fiction with a focus on craft and technique. These will also be intimate groups, developing close reading skills to help understand the tools employed in short fiction.

The groups will take place online, so are open to those in the UK and beyond.

If you are interested in being part of the community, please fill in the short form below and we will email with further details at the end of the month. Those who fill in the form here will have first access to our reading and writing groups.
