Begin or Create Something


So far, writers based in Devon have attended online writing workshops in poetry, novel writing and character building. 

We have worked with Exeter University and Jalada Africa to deliver writing workshops which gave writers in Devon the chance to meet with writers in East Africa. 

We have given everyone a chance to interact with live interviews involving writers talking about their books that have included this year’s Nobel Prize for Literature winner and also a writer shortlisted for the Booker prize. 

We are currently working with Huza Press in Rwanda to put together further exchanges with writers in a project funded by The British Council. 

A new series of events is in the works, exploring themes based on the role of memoir in a writer’s development, writing about the environment, the role of printmaking in relation to publishing, and connecting the English Romantics and Persian romantic poetry, as well as some practical how to events, and reading sessions via Twitter Spaces.  More news to follow soon.

If you would like to participate in future events or partner with the Authors Cafe in any way please join our mailing list or send your message via our contact page.
