Chasing Driftwood Writing Group was set up by Christchurch author Chantelle Atkins in May 2015. The aim of the group is to deliver workshops, events and clubs to those who are passionate about writing. Chasing Driftwood runs creative writing workshops for children aged 7-16 years in the school holidays. These workshops are ideal for budding young writers, and cover a wide variety of topics, such as short stories, screenwriting, FanFiction, poetry, journals, flash fiction and more… The adult writing group aims to encourage local writers to get writing and keep writing. Within a warm and friendly atmosphere, members are encouraged to share and offer feedback on work, and can request information and sessions on any subjects from conquering social media, to which publishing route is best for them. There is a real emphasis on progress! add another page.

    1. Hello Sarah, yes I certainly do! You can order tickets via the link on the Children’s Workshop page here on the blog, or if you would prefer to pay on the door that is fine! I would just need a contact number left with me on the day. Many thanks! Chantelle


  1. Hi, I would like to come to the Writers group next Monday (9th). Do I need to register or can I just come along? I have been in a great group before and am excited to get my writing moving again. Cheers, Richard


  2. Hi, I’m a really inexperienced writer but I am really interested in learning more. Could I get a bit more info regarding attending one of the workshops please. I live in Christchurch.


    1. Hi Will! Yes of course. The next adult workshop is booked for Saturday 8th July, 10am-1pm, Christchurch Library, Community Room 2. Tickets are £12 per person and available on the link below. This is a thorough workshop for anyone thinking about self-publishing. We will be looking in great detail about what it actually means to be an indie writer, and what you need to do in order to grow a following. It’s going to be very honest, as well as positive and the aim is for people to go away knowing whether self-publishing is for them or not. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
