NWS helps writers navigate the path from aspiration, through dedication, to publication.
Our year-round development programmes help writers develop their craft and careers, from one-day writing intensives, to weekend retreats and evening classes, to ongoing critique and writing groups for NWS members. As a member you can book on any of our open courses and workshops for a 33% discount.
Membership is just £6.67 a month – the price of two cappucinos.
My initial thoughts were: ‘My writing is nowhere near good enough to join a group like NWS.’ The benefits of being involved in such a group kept coming to mind, so I succumbed and applied for membership. I was delighted to be accepted.
The writers here are not only dedicated and committed, but kind and encouraging. There is such a wealth of knowledge in the Studio. I have met interesting and inspiring people – the types of people I want to emulate. At NWS they treat me like an equal.
NWS has been my rock over the last few years. It has improved the quality of my writing through the critique groups. It has found me work, as a writer and as a teacher of writing.
I owe my professional career to NWS. I have been given so much support and guidance about becoming a freelancer.
I’m now the author of three published novels, with another exciting project in the pipeline. I met my fabulous current publisher through NWS and signed the contract at a Word of Mouth event.
