Sara Banerji’s  Tuesday Writing Workshop is held at Cafe Opera, Walton Street, and takes place from 10.30 – 12.30.

The small group of merry writers is called ‘The Walton Street Writers.. They have recently published a collection of their work, Tales from a Bookshop. the profits of which go to the Oxford homeless. (link for buying the book?)

The group also puts on shows and book launches for the public.

Each session is led by Sara, who has been teaching creative writing at Oxford University and other places for nearly 20 years. The sessions consist of the group hearing and  commenting on homework set by Sara, or the latest episode of someone’s novel in progress. There follows a discussion about some aspect of writing or publishing fiction.

Sara brings tarts filled with home grown and home made jam to every session.

The cost is £100 for the first 10 sessions and £10 a session thereafter..

If you would like to join the Walton Street Writers contact  You will get a warm welcome as well as a jam tart!.
