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.

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 – these session consists of writing exercises and sharing of works in progress. Although you don’t have to attend every session, we encourage participants to attend at least two before sharing your own work and receiving peer feedback.

New for 2023
There will be monthly sessions with facilitators dates and names to be announced soon! We also hope to have a formal sharing event take place in November 2023. Keep your eyes on the website for more information on this.,..

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
