Welcome to The Writers’ Block

Once upon a time, in the heart of Cornwall, a magical world opened its doors…

With innovation and creativity at its heart, The Writers’ Block is both a place to write and a unique approach to developing confidence and skills in writing for everyone. Resident in The Ladder in Redruth, we have a range of activities from story sessions for very young children to writing masterclasses and everything in between. Explore our website and events page to find out more.

Out and about across Cornwall you might see our team of glamorous troubadours, The Story Republic. Bringing words and story to life, they can be found on harbours and hill tops, popping up at festivals and events across Cornwall.

We now have a whole-new digital strand to our work, with online workshops, digital storytelling, podcasts and digital creative writing workshops for schools.
