Starts 23 September 2020
A fortnightly term-time course initially via Zoom and, when permitted, in the Bookshop Café, for a small group of dedicated writers.
Lisa Meekison, a writer represented by David Higham Associates Literary Agency, will be coordinating the group.
Each meeting will include a facilitated discussion on topics ranging from character creation to pitching your work, and the opportunity to focus on works-in-progress across the group through in-depth critiquing. The course will also include industry talks given by writers, editors, publicists and agents.
Group members will receive two books on writing practice and a 15% discount on books purchased in the Bookshop through the duration of the course.

“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
