Nottingham Writers’ Studio is a one-of-a-kind venue in the heart of the Midlands. We’re a place for members to come together and meet like-minded people, as well as somewhere to grow our craft and become the best writers we can be.

Nottingham Writers’ Studio is a place for you to learn, grow, and meet writers just like you.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been writing for decades, we’ve got networking events and writing workshops that are perfect for you.

Between us, we write fiction, poetry, scripts, blog posts, journalism, copy, and just about any other type of writing you can think of.

And we’re passionate about supporting other writers.

At Nottingham Writers’ Studio, you can connect with accountability buddies to keep you motivated.

You can join critique groups to get feedback on your writing.

You can meet fellow writers who will inspire you.

Or use the studio as your home away from home to come along and get work done!

Whatever it is you want to get out of your writing, we’re here to help.

Our members have built critique groups for all types of writing from YA novels to LGTBQ+ writing, and we’re always looking to create new critique groups and introduce new members to ongoing ones.

We regularly hold urban writing retreats in our Nottingham city centre-based building, where you can take part in tutored workshops and brainstorm your ideas.

We also hold all sorts of events and courses around writing, from how to get your work published, to how to get started on your next great project.

Whatever stage of your writing career you’re at, we’ve got a course for you.

Our space is also open to hire from members of the public for events at very competitive rates for a central Nottingham location.


Modern urban living in and amongst refurbished lace factories and warehouses. On-trend independent retailers and many bars, restaurants, cafés, galleries, arts cinema and theatres. A buzz in the daytime and a rhythm at night.
