This was taken mid lock-down when we could meet, a few of the regulars with Hull Crime/Noir author, Nick Quantrill.

For those who live local to Beverley, East Yorkshire we meet usually the third Wednesday of each month, details are on social media and EventBrite (link below).

For those further afield, I have two online Facebook groups

The Coffeehouse Writers Group – which is a general group for you to talk all things writing, discover competitions and meet new friends.


Writing for Holiday Movies– which is exactly as it says, aimed at anyone who is interested in writing cozy Christmas, Easter, Valentines day etc movies.

In both groups I often arrange guest speakers who are professionals in their own right from and previous guests have included authors, scriptwriters, poets, Hollywood Producers, Tax Accounts who specialise in Writers, Video Games writers and we will be having a lot more!

Each week day I also run an accountability Writing Sprint, at 7am- 9am (BST), this is a Zoom space where you can come along, share your intentions for writing for that day, listen to a motivational quote and choose if you want you screen on or off, but everyone is muted. Then we meet up again at the end and see how we have all got on. This works incredibly well at increasing productivity and and encourages you to start your day ( or finish if you are one of our New Zealand sprinters!) in a positive manner. Why not give its go!
