Green Ink Writers' Gym


Take Your Word-Count for a Workout!

Green Ink Writers’ Gym welcomes writers of all levels of experience. Our workshops, courses, coaching and editorial support provide the skills, confidence, technique and inspiration to help you develop, enjoy  and explore your writing world. Whether you’re closer to ‘first draft’ or ‘the end’, our writing workouts exercise your voice so your story shines.

A Green Ink Writers’ Gym term membership entitles you to one six-week course with as many of our writing retreats and social events as you like, along with a private Facebook group to stay in touch with your writing community.
