You've come to the write place!

Hastings Writers Room is a not-for-profit organisation offering a range of courses for authors at all stages of their writing careers, from complete beginners seeking a ‘taster’ half-day tutorial to those wanting the focus of a more intensive residential writing break. One-to-one bespoke sessions can also be arranged to suit the individual. All courses are led by experienced and qualified tutors and authors.

HWR also runs writing competitions with prizes, plus feedback from the judges for all shortlisted entrants.

Services for writers include introductions to agents, copy editors, illustrators, and others who can assist the new or established author in bringing a project to fruition.
