Writers Group

Writers’ Group


The Sevenoaks Bookshop supports a community of writers who have diverse goals, but who all share a love of learning, craft and community.

We will be running our next Writing Group Sept 2022 to June 2023. Meetings will include a facilitated discussion on topics ranging from character creation to pitching work, and the opportunity to focus on your works-in-progress through in-depth critiquing from the group. The course will also include industry talks given by writers, editors, publicists or agents.

Participants who finish the Writing Group course will be invited to join our Alumni Group, a thriving community that shares content and support and special events.

We welcome questions and enquiries! If you’d like to learn more about the 2022 course, register interest in potential upcoming Creative Writing Workshops, or just learn about the Writing Group more generally, please email [email protected].


“Being a part of the Sevenoaks Bookshop Writers Group been an incredibly important part of my journey towards becoming a writer. The group is small and friendly and has so many positives. It gave me ‘permission’ to call myself a writer; provided much needed momentum to keep me on track, regularly creating and sharing pieces with the group; and opened my eyes to the many different routes towards being published. With a wide range of topics up for discussion and a series of very credible guest speakers. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my two years with this group and would recommend it to anyone who wants to write.”
– Linden, ex-member of the Writers Group
