What shall I do with my Creative Writing group?
Here are a list of suggestions based on what you might do over a year, whether you meet once a week or once a month. Each suggested session plan allows you to plan an interesting session with your group, and suggests what to do in the session, what you need to prepare before the session and how you might follow it up. Suggested timings are included.
Have fun with my Let's get Writing. Those creative juices will soon be flowing.

There are three prompts a day for the whole of 2023. Some are short and pithy, others are inspired by obscure days e.g. 8 January Bubble Bath Day, and some go into more detail on an aspect of writing craft. There are series that go over a number of days. A few prompts are about works in progress and several give you the choice of working with a text you have already created, creating something new or even editing a completed piece of work. But every prompt gives you the opportunity to write something as well.
These prompts were put together by writers published by the Bridge House, CaféLit and Chapeltown imprints, and their friends.

can sit on a shelf, raising money for charity at the same time.
