Some of these sessions may be writing and discussion only sessions (no critiques), but we’ll know closer to the time.

May 2014 Cola Factory writing group sessions


Our next sessions are Tuesday the 13th May and Tuesday the 27th of May. We always encourage new members to come along at least once to meet the group and see how we go about things. We are a fairly sociable lot and have lively discussions along with the more serious business of critique. We use a blend of written and verbal feedback that is meant to help authors understand how they effect their audience.

If you’re interested in joining us please see the ‘about’ page for further details.

  • Before the event, the author will shuffle about, chatting embarrassedly to the staff, hoping that someone–anyone–will turn up.
  • Once enough people have arrived to save the author from having to talk to himself, he’ll probably do a short reading…not the one he’d…
