Do come and join us for any of our highly participative gatherings that explore the contribution that writing, reading and conversations, interacting, make to our personal and professional lives.
We are a friendly, open, informal and generous community of writing practice. We welcome anyone who is interested in any form or context of writing, reading and conversation for personal, professional, organisational or creative development. As critical friends, we are always looking for opportunities to support and celebrate each other’s writing/reading/conversational projects, enthusiasms and interests, in any way we can. We also welcome offers to propose and/or facilitate a themed session.
'Normally', we would meet in person the 3rd Friday afternoon of every even-numbered month at Roots and Shoots, London SE11 6DN from 1.15 to 4.30 pm, unless shown otherwise. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we're making a virtue of interacting via Zoom.
