Words Away

Words Away, run by writer Kellie Jackson, aims to bring writers together in a creative environment to explore the writing process. We hold monthly salons at the Tea House Theatre Cafe, in London and host creative writing workshops at The Hive, London Bridge. Through our Salons we offer a focused exploration on a particular topic with a chance to exchange ideas and ask questions in a friendly setting.

Be inspired. Develop and nurture your craft. Meet other writers. Please join us, all welcome.


Words Away creative writing salons concentrate on the writing process. Every month I invite a guest author to join you, the audience, in discussing a particular topic in writing, a genre, or a question of craft. Joining us on the platform to co-host is the writer, Emma Darwin.

Over tea, cake and a glass of wine, we’ll explore the challenges and opportunities, the difficulties and joys of writing, and the reality of being a writer. We hope you’ll come and join us. The Salons are held once a month on a Monday evening, 7.30pm at the Tea House Theatre, 139 Vauxhall Walk, London, SE11 5HL.

Workshops & Masterclasses

I'm really excited to be continuing my collaboration with writing teacher and experienced editor, Andrew Wille. On November 9th we’ll be introducing Finding Your Fire: A Four Elements workshop on writing and creativity. This is one of four new workshops expanding upon the popular Everyday Magic workshop. Fire will be followed by Water (January), Earth (March), and Air (May). Each workshop can be taken alone, and will be of use to beginning or experienced writers of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Each day will also include a session with a special guest as well as chance to network and meet other writers. Then on November 30th I’ll be running Creating a Scene: a masterclass with Alice Jolly. We’ll end the day with a Q&A with John Mitchinson, writer, publisher and the co-founder of Unbound. We'll be holding the classes at our lovely venue, the London Bridge Hive, a newly renovated space two minutes walk from London Bridge Station, situated between Borough Market and New Bermondsey St.
