And they are equally adept at the fine art of teaching.Meet Our Faculty The tools needed to write are quite simple—pen and paper, or electronic device.The regular workshops are 7.30-9.30pm on Wednesday evenings in Muswell Hill, N10.The groups are small, supportive, motivational and tailor-made, with no more than 10 in each workshop. The focus is not on critique but on the writing itself, on exploring the process.Writing is a solo act, but it’s helpful, even necessary, to connect with fellow writers.Here you will learn how to navigate the ins-and-outs of the publishing business and you’ll write (and refine) the most important selling tool for your book—the query letter.Nichola is the group facilitator and will guide you through a series of fast paced creative writing exercises.The workshops are our monthly Themed Workshops (which focus on different areas such as character, poetry and story) and our blocks of three workshops throughout the year.
