Fathom Writers

Fathom Writers Group, linked to Barton’s Ropewalk Centre for the Arts, has been meeting and writing since September 2007. The group is open to anyone interested in improving their creative writing skills. Meetings are informal with a focus on contemporary writing with a range of guest workshop leaders who have included novelist Karen Maitland and performance poet John Hegley.

Officials for 2018 are:

Chairperson Neil King
Secretary Cheryl Leaning

Creative Writing Workshops at The Ropewalk


Writers’ Support Group

The last Wednesday of the month     6.30 – 8.45    £25 for 4 months
The 2018 sessions begin on 28 February (28 March, 25 April and 30 May)

This group meets to provide support to those writing in any form: prose (fiction or non-fiction), poetry or script. Work is shared beforehand and then discussed in the group with the aim of providing constructive and positive feedback in a friendly and informal atmosphere. It is therefore not a taught course but is chaired and managed by local writer Sue Wilsea. Each month a stimulus for writing is offered, though some people prefer to focus on their existing work. Others just like to listen! Whatever stage you are at with writing, this group exists to help you progress. 

A new set of day workshops will be published soon.
