Join one of our free writing workshops and take the next steps on your writing journey. Presented by award-winning neurodiverse author Jane Elson, this is an incredible opportunity to learn from a master of storytelling.

Each two-hour workshop will cover everything from choosing your readership and concept to developing plot and characterisation, with time for questions and discussion. For further support, participants will be invited to join writing groups after the workshops – see below for more details.

The workshops are first-come, first served, each with a waiting list available. They are available to anyone resident in the UK who comes from an underrepresented group. Please note: As the content of each workshop will be the same, we kindly ask that you only register for one workshop.

There’s more! Join one of our free writing support groups…

Writing doesn’t have to be a purely solo activity! We know that being part of a writing community can make a huge difference to your creativity and commitment to developing your work.

To make this possible, All Stories will establish writing support groups available to anyone who signs up for a workshop. We hope you will want to access this fantastic additional opportunity. You will receive information about the writing support group during the workshop.
