In the beginning was the Word Factory, intimate short story salons bringing brilliant writers and readers together for wine, conversation and great work. We make writing better: creating the spaces for inspiration with a rolling programme of monthly readings and interviews. Meet our authors, join our salons and masterclasses, become a member of the short story club. If you can't join us, catch up with our film channel. Apply for our unique writing apprenticeship scheme. Together we can write the perfect ending.
