CREW (CRoydon Emerging Writers) is a peer-led writers group that is open to all. CREW was founded in order to bring together both aspiring and experienced writers alike, to allow them to collaborate, gain feedback on their work, and talk in a safe and non-judgemental space with other like-minded creatives.

All CREW projects have been hosted at Stanley Arts over the past two years, making it part of the Stanley fabric – but due to Covid, CREW has only just been able to restart as a programme in October 2021. But now it’s back!

This writing group supports all forms of written creativity – novelists, playwrights, poets and more are all welcome. CREW is a space to meet other writers, learn, share and collaborate. And it’s free!

CREW meet regularly, with fortnightly meetings every other Tuesday – this is the perfect set up in order to allow writers to progress with their work. The group allows each writer to take action on the feedback and ideas they’ve discussed with their writing peers. CREW involves lots of discussing, brainstorming, writing, and more…

The CREW programme is un-ticketed and free, but writers do need to be invited in order to join the group. If you’re interested, please email with some examples of your writing, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
