Creative writing group

The Creative Writing group at North Kensington Library is a welcoming place for aspiring writers.

Attendees submit samples of their work to be discussed by the group. The group then gives constructive feedback while the group leader gives a more informed assessment with advice for improvement.

The group always welcomes new members and the only requirement is that attendees are active writers. For more information see library staff or call 020 7361 3010.
