About this class

This mixed-level Writers' Room in Tooting is perfect for people who want to experiment with different forms and ideas and receive professional feedback in between writing at home.

Did you know?

Alfred Hitchcock was so worried about preserving the surprises in Psycho that he bought all remaining copies of Robert Bloch’s original novel ahead of the film premier.

In this class

Join Chalk the Sun on the first Saturday of every month for this drop in Writers' Room and get some professional insight into what you have been writing.

Topics vary from month to month and cover all aspects of creative writing from basic scene setting and character creating to more advanced topics such as handling voice and viewpoint or interweaving plot and theme.

You can also buy a block of 5 workshops for £125 or 10 workshops for £225.

Students can ask to cover specific areas like poetry or writing a radio play. Guest tutors such as crime novelist Claire McGowan or children's editor Simona Sideri sometimes teach these sessions.

Now you can

  • Set the scene for your story;
  • Develop credible characters;
  • Get professional feedback on your work.

Creative writing courses, sharing brilliant ideas with other imaginative people.

Ardella Jones heads up a team of writers, editors and producers who teach creative writing with a difference. Tired of trying to teach creative writing courses in dreary Adult Education Institutions, she set up her own school with fellow writer Jo Hepplewhite where they could teach in a relaxed environment without the bureaucracy and next to a nice bar with comfy sofas.

Chalk the Sun don’t just ‘thank the group for sharing’, they provide constructive criticism and inspiring tuition whether you want to experiment with fiction or drama for the first time, or you want to publish a novel with a view to publication.
