The Writers’ Cafe

Age Range: 18+
Ability Level: All levels
Upcoming Dates: 25th June, 30th July, 27th August, 24th September, 29th October, 26th November

The monthly Writer’s Cafe is a place to meet and greet, talk about writing, talk about reading, share ideas, maybe try a writing exercise, grab a drink from the Gregson Cafe Bar…all with the aim creating a safe space to foster writing motivation and inspiration.

The cafe is for anyone aged 18+ writing creatively in any genre (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama) wherever you are on your writing journey, beginner or experienced. Writing exercises will be provided for those who need some inspiration!

All you need is your laptop and/or pen and paper, and your enthusiasm.

Session leaders Sarah Dodd and Helen Lapping are both Lancaster-based long time writers of fiction and non-fiction for children and young adults, Sarah’s published and Helen’s working towards that (!):

“We’re both school teachers, although Helen retired at the end of 2021. We’d like to meet and network with other local writers and add to the writing community here in Lancaster”

Please contact for further details and to let us know you’re coming. See you there!

Next meeting: 25th June
