Wolsey Writers is here for you. We are a creative writing group based at New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich. We offer a friendly space to let your imagination work; tips on how to improve; and encouragement to achieve your goals.
‘Humble, informative and inspirational – that is surely the success and key to Wolsey Writers.’
Wherever you are on your writing journey, Wolsey Writers can support and inspire you.
First established in 2015 as a backstage workshop, Wolsey Writers has had a superb 2021 reboot: we’re now officially part of NWT Creative Communities. This means more creative writing opportunities for people in Ipswich and Suffolk throughout the year; and a chance to share your work with an audience, as part of a community performance project (more details soon).
‘Coming at a time when I’m trying to write my first novel, these sessions have been invaluable.’
‘With only a week to go to my first professionally performed play at #INKFestival2019 I owe thanks to the brilliant #wolseywriters workshops that were run by the inspiring @katiewardwriter at @NewWolsey’
Creative writing workshops are deep-dives into a theme; includes groupwork, focused writing time, support, and inspiration.
Free, informal meetups for writers and creatives in the upstairs bar. Peer support and special guest authors.
Facilitated by Katie Ward, an award-winning Suffolk author, published in the UK and US. Wolsey Writers is suitable for adults & young people age 16+ with a commitment to creative writing.
