Newcastle Centre for the Literary Arts



Creative Saturdays

We run a number of one-day workshops for creative writers to hone their skills across a variety of genres.

Our forthcoming workshops

Spring School

Here you will find details of our annual Spring School event, which looks at aspects of creative writing in detail.

Spring School is a one-week intensive creative writing course open to everyone, although those attending should be committed writers. The ideal candidate is an aspiring writer who possesses a serious creative intent to see their work develop. Beginners and writers with more experience are equally welcome.

Full details will appear online and in NCLA’s spring 2018 events and courses booklet. 

Festival Workshops

During the Newcastle Poetry Festival we offer a number of in-depth workshops with distinguished international writers.
