Become a Word Factory Friend and enjoy priority booking and other exclusive offers.
Our dynamic programme brings you close to some of the world's most accomplished authors at London's friendliest literary salon. This year, we're featuring unmissable writers such as Alexei Sayle, Edna O'Brien, Nikesh Shukla, K.J Orr, Kit De Waal and Kevin Barry. Having listened to our valued Members, we are continuing with our renowned special events and masterclasses, but our 2017 activities now also include a new mentoring scheme, writing retreat, member evenings and podcast service. We are also growing our free advice services, offering you the chance to publish and read your own work, or you can simply come along, relax and enjoy a good story.
Make the most of these literary delights and become a WORD FACTORY FRIEND. Not only will you will hear about all these events before anyone else, but you also get priority booking and discounted tickets.
By becoming a Friend, you are also helping the sustainability of the only organisation in the UK promoting and supporting quality short story writing - a unique not-for-profit literary company run by and for writers.
We need your help so that we can continue to offer a unique service and develop new services for you.
Here's what some leading authors have to say about us:
“The Word Factory has quickly become an important part of literary life in the UK”.
"Cathy Galvin has created a remarkable community of writers around the Word Factory. Events and workshops are always worthwhile, well-organised and inspiring".
"Word Factory convenes good-sized, enthusiastic audiences for short stories in a relaxed, convivial setting that makes the events feel like an indulgence rather than a cultural duty".
