Organiser Uncategorized

We’re at the Lindfield Arts Festival on Saturday 22nd!

Do come and join us if you can. We’re part of the main literary programme in a big pink tent on the common:

There are some great writers as you will see, and we’re running two writing workshops at 11:30 (for kids) and at 5:00 (for grown-ups) … it’d be great if you could come along to support and take part!

Waterstones and West Sussex Libraries are there too, so good chance to promote your work too, we have a table for anyone who wants to display anything!

any queries, let me know … otherwise see you there


… our next regular meeting is Friday, 19th October with a theme of ‘rock metal vibration’ for your 200 words

Meeting Reminder!

Adam Jolly Event

Hi everyone,

We’re meeting this Friday, the 14th at 7:30pm in the library.
We’ve come forward a week because the following Saturday, the 22nd, we’re at the Lindfield Arts Festival … just posted details on our facebook page!

We’re running two workshops, at 11:30 and 17:00 on ‘ready, steady, write‘, first for children, then for everyone … brilliant template from Charlie!

It’d be great if you could come along and support … it’s a great chance to raise our profile! Do let me know if you’re happy to help with the sessions on the day. We’re in the big pink tent on the common, where there’s a literary programme for the rest of the day … looks a really strong line-up!

For this Friday, you’re invited to bring along 200 words under the theme of ‘jazz online‘, which you are free to interpret as creatively, as you like.!

We’ll then do some writing exercises … and head to the pub for 9:00pm!

see you there,


Next Writers On The Heath Meeting

Organiser Event

Will be on Friday Nov 23rd.
The time, as usual is from 7:30pm in Haywards Heath library – we finish about 9pm.

PLEASE NOTE: this is the week after our usual schedule of the third Friday in the month.

If you want to bring some writing (200-250 words) with you, the suggested topic words are

  • Raven
  • Ballet
  • Bust

Use them any way you like! There are no right or wrong interpretations! Some of us often try and twist them into something less than obvious – or down right tenuous!
Or you can take them at face value as a word or words to try and inspire or incorporate into a short piece of writing!

What do they make you think of?

Creative Writing Courses

Paul Davey Event, Tools & Tips

Aspire Sussex (which is what used to be West Sussex Adult Education) have some Creative Writing courses

Locations are varied – but include Burgess Hill and Crawley as well as further afield (as far as Chichester, Littlehampton).

Most are during the working day, but there are some one day courses on Saturdays (such as these two*).
Other courses usually run for ten weeks in academic terms. (So starting next in September and then in January…)
