A writing group for anyone aged 16+ who identifies as Black British, Black African or Caribbean.
Through fortnightly workshops led by playwright and actor Yolanda Mercy, the Black Writers Collective develop their own skills as writers through workshops, sharing of their own work with each other and public audiences, as well as hearing from invited industry guests. Recent guests have included Charlotte Bennett of Paines Plough, and writer and performer Nathan Bryon.
Launched in July 2020, we have already hosted one showcase of participants work, and have lots of plans for 2021.
“Thank you for giving us a space to explore, trust ourselves as writers and continued support!”
The Collective is free to join, although we may begin to operate a waiting list if there is a lot of interest.
We meet every Monday from 7 – 8.30pm, currently online only.
