Hatchery Writers meet on the SECOND SATURDAY of each month from 11am to 1pm. 

Each meeting is individual in content, style and character.  It can be a get-together of members to share their writing, a talk by an author, a workshop on aspects of writing, a presentation or even a preview of a Fringe show.  The common denominator is that all our meetings are related to the process of being creative with words.

Come along to any of our monthly meetings.  See you there!


The Wolseley Room, Hove Library, 182-186 Church Rd, Hove BN3 2EG

    Hi I am a member of Hatchery and have been attending the Sat meetings for some time. I enjoy the talks and workshops provided. I like the fact that there is no pressure to write anything, instead we listen, discuss and share our aims and progress as writers.
