  1. Excellent - glad you enjoyed it. Hope to see you at a future Scribble ---------- Post added 19-06-2014 at 09:59 ---------- Hi everyone, Very sorry, but due to my wife's pregnancy, I am having to cancel Scribble until September. Therefore, the June event (today) will not be on. Sorry Chris
  2. Hi everyone, I am running two writing/spoken word events in Sheffield this month. It would be great if you could come along to one or both! Scribble Storytelling Night - Thursday, 19th June at The Red Deer, Pitt Street. From 7-9pm, there will be an open mic storytelling event in the upstairs room at the Red Deer. It is a free event and there is no obligation to share your stories, although the mic is there for anyone who wants to read a story, recite a poem, sing a song, etc. Sheffield Writer's Retreat - Saturday, 28th June at Wesley Hall, Crookes. From 10am-5pm, the Emmaus Room at Wesley Hall becomes a distraction-free zone, where writers can get together to create, refine and perfect their writing. Tea, coffee and biscuits are in constant supply and there are plenty of plug sockets for laptops. Why not treat yourself to a day of writing? The cost of the day is £15. More details on these two events can be found on my webpage - http://sheffieldwriter.weebly.com/ or via my twitter (@sheffieldwrite) or facebook (/sheffieldwrite) pages. Thanks, Chris

  7. I run a day-long urban writing retreat at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield. £15 (refreshments included) for about 7 hours of solitude in which to write. Great if you find that you're easily distracted, or unable to find space at home, or if you just want to write in a room full of other writers. The next retreat is on the 27th July, although there are only limited places, so best to book early! Future dates can also be found online. More details, and booking information, can be found at http://sheffieldwriter.weebly.com/sheffield-writers-retreats.html
  8. Hi, Thanks for your interest. It's usually a really supportive night, full of people who just want to hear a few stories. It would be great to see you there. We generally get any number from 15 to 30 people attend. Come along, see what you think, I'm sure that you'll feel like sharing after getting a feel of the atmosphere. Just in case you're really against reading, you could always ask a friend to read for you :-) Will hopefully see you on Thursday, Chris
