Newcastle Writing Courses

Launching in 2023 in partnership with New Writing North, our programme of writing courses in Newcastle will include fiction, poetry, memoir and children's writing and take place at The Common Room.

Our Newcastle writing courses: an overview

After over a decade of welcoming students to Faber's London offices, we're thrilled to be hosting a full programme of writing courses in Newcastle. We've partnered with New Writing North and The Common Room for this new venture, with courses for 2023 including our flagship six-month Writing a Novel course along with shorter courses across a variety of genres.

The Common Room is a new charity, formed to lead the restoration of Neville Hall in Newcastle. Their vision is to use their unique heritage to inspire the next generation of innovators and engineers.
