Literature and writing

Interested in writing short stories, opinion pieces, your memoirs or even a novel? The Avenue Writers are keen to welcome new members who are interested in writing and would like to develop their creative writing skills in a friendly and supportive environment.

This is a critique group specifically for those who write for children and teens. The function fo the group is to support each other as fellow writers, critique each other's work and share industry knowledge. The group is made up of both published and unpublished writers of fiction and non-fiction. Newcomers are welcome but numbers are limited.

Our tutor, award-winning poet and children's writer Catherine Bateson, will run a series of online classes in Term 3 focussing on Diverse voices:

Each week we will discuss the poem featured on the previous week's Slow Down https://www/slowdownshow.org (a weekly poem podcast curated by Tracy K Smith) accompanied by another poem which I will provide. The theme of the class is diverse voices and the aim is to introduce us all to a diversity of contemporary poets, paired with more familiar modern poets from both the UK and the US.
