Peak Scribbling Writers' Group

7-8.30pm every other Tuesday.

Are you interested in writing? Always wanted to write, but never had the time/space? Need some inspiration or want encouragement on the writing you are doing?

The Peak Scribbling Writer's Group is for people who are writing all sorts of fiction and poetry - or who have the aspiration to get started.

You can come along and use the creative prompts and activities or work on your own writing. There is time to share your work in the group too.

We also arrange trips to spoken word events and have run our own "Ghost Stories for Grown-ups" evening.

We meet 7.00pm - 8.30pm at the Studios gallery in New Mills, every other Tuesday starting in October. Please feel free to join us as little or as often as you like.

The cost per session is £4 to cover room hire and printing.
