About Sip and Scribe

Sip and Scribe is exactly what it says on the tin. Just turn up, do some writing and have a drink.

Here you’ll learn more than just how to write – you’ll develop your creative thinking, too. And we’re open to everyone. You might not have picked up a pen in years, or you may have just released your 10th book. You’ll get something from Sip and Scribe whatever your experience – so come along.

Every Sip and Scribe is different.

Some weeks we’ll focus on poetry, other weeks horror stories. So drop by and sharpen your writing skills, broaden your creative mind, and be inspired with other people. We’d love to see you every time, but there’s no need to sign up long-term.

We’ve led writing classes for schools, universities and community groups across the UK. We aim to innovate around the traditional workshop format, focusing on how to release inspiration rather than structure it. Our ultimate aim is to empower you with a creative vision which helps you see stories wherever you are.

All materials will be provided, and you can pay what you want.
