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 to run some new masterclasses on craft.  Andrew was our guest in the first Words Away salon: Make Your Novel Shine.  We have masterclasses scheduled for the spring and summer. On May 11th we’re running a new class, Density and Speed: Crafting Space and Time in Writing. Then on June 15th we’ll be starting the series again beginning with The Craft of Revising: A Masterclass on Self-editing for Writers. Each of our events feature a Q&A session with industry professionals as well as chance to network and meet other writers. 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.
