Since early 2015, we’ve been taking our acclaimed creative writing workshops on the road. To date, ark books in Copenhagen, Unijazz in Prague, Sterling Books in Brussels and The English Bookshop in Stockholm have partnered with us to offer our creative writing weekends.

There’s nothing we like better than getting out and about and meeting writers, so if your bookshop or writing group would like to invite Jane and Victoria or another Reader tutor (fancy some poetry? or scriptwriting? or picture book writing?), do get in touch. We work on a profit-sharing basis. Have passports. Will spread the love of writing everywhere!

Past international workshops include:


In 2016, Victoria Gosling held KICKSTART YOUR WRITING at The English Bookshop in Stockholm, Sweden

“Hosting the weekend writers’ workshop with The Reader Berlin was a great experience for the bookshop. Victoria was lovely to work with and she made the organizing very easy. Everyone who signed up thoroughly enjoyed it, and the workshop was also financially beneficial for the bookshop as we sold some books and managed to reach out to new customers. We would be delighted to host a similar event with The Berlin Reader again in the future. ” – Julia, The English Bookshop, Stockholm.

“As a new writer, I was thrilled when I found my imagination boosted and the words flowing as we did creative exercise after exercise: free writing, character creation, dialogue, theme, point of view. Victoria and Jane are both enthusiastic and skilled tutors” – Nicola Lennon, workshop attendee

In 2015, Victoria Gosling and Jane Flett held a CREATIVE WRITING workshop at Ark Books in Copenhagan, Denmark

“Having Victoria and Jane around was a pleasure, the workshop was equally entertaining and eye-opening, and we’ve had nothing but good response from the participants. As a bookseller, it also provided me with an opportunity to really meet and engage with our community in a different way, which was an immense delight. Would have them back any day.” Maya, Ark Books, Copenhagen.

CREATIVE WRITING workshop with Victoria Gosling and Jane Flett, UniJazz, Prague – Czech Republic, 2015

“A great weekend spent with Victoria and Jane. Two very passionate writers who clearly love to spend time with fellow writers and budding novelists/script writers. Numerous tips and techniques were given and I,  for one, learnt a huge amount from the workshop. Ticked every box for me” – Mark Matthews, workshop attendee
