Write Night at 15 Queen Street

This post originally appeared on

On Monday night, I put on my creative boots and visited 15 Queen Street, Colchester’s community-led cultural and work space, to join WriteNight. This is something which I’m sure happens in other towns and cities too, where people who love creative writing get together to try out some different challenges and share their work, one evening every couple of weeks.

Writing at WriteNight

The group in Colchester has been meeting for just over a year, and I was a little nervous going along for the first time, but I was made to feel very welcome – the group were lovely. There were quite a range of different interests and styles represented, as well as ages and backgrounds, and it was great to meet new people and chat about books and writing projects.
I’m looking forward to going along again in the future and it was also great to pop into 15 Queen Street, as I’ve not been before – it seems like a space with lots of potential for use in the future, although the Green Party meeting upstairs used all the chairs (who knew the Green Party was so popular?!). Hopefully, if and when the St Botolph’s area really becomes Colchester’s Cultural Quarter, perhaps there’ll be more (comfortable) space and opportunity for groups like this to meet.

If you’re in the Colchester area, and want to come along, the group has a Facebook page with more information and they’re also on Twitter, follow @ColWriteNight for updates.

    Hi, I live in Colchester myself (just moved back after a couple of years) – is this anything to do with Film Colchester or the Screenwriters’ Meetings, or is it something different? I’ll have to check it out and come along when it’s next on!

      Hi Hannah,

      This is a different group which also meets at 15 Queen Street – the ones you talk about are still up and running too though!

      Next meeting – tonight
