The Writers’ Cafe was established in 2012, formed from the premise that writers needed a place to meet other writers, away from the distraction of home. Our workshops are quite unique, using ideas from science, myths and legends, divination and urban legends as inspiration for writing prompts.

The Writers’ Cafe Magazine launched on October 31st 2017.


“If geography is prose, maps are iconography.” Lennart Meri
