Children, families, community

The Writers' Block is an inspirational writing and creativity hub for the whole community.

We have a programme of activities throughout the year that ranges from the authorial arts of drawing and illustration to creative writing, poetry and spoken word performance.

Little Story Seekers – a story, song and movement session for very young children and their parents and carers.

Young Writers – a friendly monthly group for young people with a love of creative writing to develop hone their skills.

Manga – a monthly after school group led by Manga Master Keith Sparrow.

Adult writing for wellbeing workshops – run by professional writers.

Adult Creative Writing Masterclasses – run on a variety of themes, styles, modes and genres.

Primary Creative Writing Club – a weekly after-school writing club for 8-11 year olds.

Speakeasy – a space for writers to test out their work on a friendly audience, or just to listen to new talent.

Teachers as Writers – a workshop to give teachers the tools to be confident creative writers.

Podcasts – speaking with Cornwall-based writers on creative writing in times of change.

Holiday activities – Story Adventurers for 5-8 year olds where children explore The Writers’ Block to discover a story and then create their own!

Live author readings – both online and in person.
