All have been, or are being translated into several languages.

From the offset the club was welcoming and friendly and I even felt confident enough, in the short time I'd been there, to share my work with the group. The format of the session was perfectly conducive to encouraging confidence and creativity that isn't restricted and the guest speaker, Esther Freud was super interesting and really engaging. I was gutted to miss write club in feb but the March session was just so incredible. Matt and Susanna have created a really special and safe environment where everyone is encouraged to be unapologetically themselves and to explore their creativity without boundaries. Katherine Angel was also an amazing guest speaker who inspired the whole group - myself included! Thanks for creating something so amazing!’ *** Write Club is a community of creatives that come together to write and share work. Whether writing is your career, art, self-care or lifelong unrealised dream, we hold space to explore, experiment and deepen your writing practice. On the last Monday of every month at a different Soho Works location, Write Club will spend an intimate evening together writing, hearing from an industry leading writer and sharing our words in a welcoming and supportive environment. Each Write Club session will bring focus to a specific discipline including screenwriting, performance, fiction and poetry. At the start of the evening a writing brief will be set and then responded to individually. Participants are then invited to share their work at the conclusion of the session. Write Club is anchored in retreats, supper clubs and digital meet-ups all designed to establish a routine of writing, inspire confidence and create a community for what can sometimes feel like a solo profession. No previous writing experience is required to attend our sessions or join us. Over time and in collaboration with attendees, Write Club X Soho Works will expand to include outcomes such as publications, films, events and retreats. Soho Works X Write Club is free to attend for all Soho Works members. Food and drink will be provided. ***
