Meet. Write. Share.


Wolsey Writers is a creative writing group based at New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich, since 2015.

Our community includes novelists, scriptwriters, poets, storytellers, children’s literature, comedy, and nonfiction. We welcome writing in any genre. We welcome writers from diverse backgrounds. We welcome all levels of experience and aspirations of every size – from haiku to blockbuster trilogy.

‘Humble, informative and inspirational – that is surely the success and key to Wolsey Writers.’

Wolsey Writers is led by Katie Ward, an award-winning novelist and lecturer in creative writing at University of Suffolk. Every session includes tips to improve your creative practice, focused writing time, peer support and inspiration.

‘Excellent forum to meet other writers, share work and get constructive feedback.’
