Space to Write returns to Flowerfield Arts Centre | Thurs 23 June

21st June 2022


Space to Write returns to Flowerfield Arts Centre, Portstewart, on Thursday 23rd June, 7pm – 8.30pm

Are you a writer who’d like to meet up with other writers in the Causeway Coast & Glens area and have some time out to work in a new environment?

Space to Write is a free initiative through which we hope you will, literally, find the space and time to write. Flowerfield Arts Centre is offering writers a specific time that they can come together to network/meet and work on their writing in quieter spots in the centre – from the galleries to our reception café area to our ground floor corridor.

Writers are invited to gather for a short welcome, find a comfortable space in the arts centre and write quietly for an hour, after which time we will meet in the café area for a cuppa and a chat before heading home.

Please note, this isn’t a creative writing workshop. It offers space for individual writers to meet and network at a specific time each week and have some creative space.

You may be a first-time or a published writer. You may be a writer working in any genre. You may like to take inspiration from the exhibitions in the galleries at Flowerfield, or to continue with a work-in-progress.

There will be no exercises or prompts offered, no sharing of work or feedback given. This is quite simply an invitation to turn up and write, and to make and renew connections with like-minded individuals in an atmosphere that is social and supportive.

Space to Write began at Flowerfield on 3rd March this year and has had a short break while the arts centre was undergoing work. It will return on Thursdays over the summer beginning Thursday 23rd June from 7pm - 8.30pm.

Local author Bernie McGill says: ‘Writing can be a lonely business and having an agreed ‘appointment’ to write has proved to be extraordinarily effective. We hold the space for each other at Flowerfield on a Thursday evening. It’s been very productive for all of us.’

There is no cost – we just want you to hang out and be inspired! Register by emailing
