Workshops

Didcot Writers run regular workshops with guest tutors and facilitators, and collaborate with other organisations (including Oxford University Continuing Education and Cornerstone Arts Centre) to run other workshops. You can read about our past workshops here.

Venue: All Saints Community Hall, Roman Place (off Foxhall Road), Didcot, OX11 7ER.

We welcome ideas for new workshops and tutors, to make a suggestion please get in touch.

Further information

All events are suitable for beginners and those with a work in progress to develop.

Didcot Writers is a group of adults, but in some circumstances it might be appropriate for teenagers 16+ to attend our workshops. If this applies to you please get in touch in advance so that we can ask the workshop leader before the event.

Workshops are highlighted in red or gold on the Calendar.



Upcoming events




January-March 2020

We kick of the new year with a set of five workshops from Deborah Bosley, who is back in Didcot by popular demand.

Sharpen up your Writing: Whether you need to flesh out your characters, beef up your plot, or master effective dialogue, this boot camp for books will take your writing wherever you want it to go. The sessions will be informal, collaborative and fun, and will be suitable for beginners as well as those with a work in progress.

All workshops take place 7-9pm at All Saints Community Hall, Roman Place (off Foxhall Road), Didcot, OX11 7ER.

Each individual workshop costs £14, you can attend just one, a selection, or sign up to all of them for £60 (a £10 discount). To book a selection of workshops, click 'add to cart', then 'continue shopping'.

Future workshops

Workshops are highlighted in red on the Calendar.

In 2020 we are planning to publish our first poetry anthology, and will hold several workshops relating to this from April-June - so, watch this space (or join our mailing list)!

If you have an idea for a workshop, or have experience running workshops and would like to be one of our tutors in future, please get in touch.



Cancellations and refunds

Please note, Didcot Writers is a not-for-profit community-run organisation. These workshops are run at a low cost thanks to the work of our volunteers, and all ticket money goes towards paying for tutors, room hire, refreshments on the night, and other expenses incurred.

If you need to cancel your place please let us know with as much notice as possible - if we can resell your place we will give you a full refund. If we cannot resell your place then we will not be able to offer a refund.
