Liverpool John Moores University

The LJMU Writing&Talking Saturday Club is a free creative writing group where participants explore their writing ideas and skills. Each Saturday morning Club members will approach a different form of writing. These sessions will engage many of our undergraduate subject areas, including writing poetry, character building, scriptwriting, writing about yourself, what objects tell us, short prose and cut-ups and wordplay.

The aim of the sessions is to encourage members to explore and enhance their creative writing skills, but past students also indicated that it helped them with life skills, such as confidence, team building, communication and making new friends.

The Club will produce new work each week and this will take the form of posters, pamphlets and notebooks full of writing. The Club will also get the opportunity to visit the Walker Art Gallery to write about the gallery’s paintings and sculpture, and the Museum of Liverpool where writing will take place in an old Liverpool tram or beside the museum’s replica liver bird. For its Masterclass, the Writing & Talking Club will work with a stand-up comedian to write gags and then perform them at an open mic. The best of the Club’s creative material will be developed into an anthology to be showcased at the Summer Show in Somerset House London, with all members invited to attend – for free!

It’s fun, creative and you meet new people.
