Metal at Chalkwell Hall, Chalkwell Avenue
Southend-on-Sea, SS0 8NB

For the month of April 2022, Essex Book Festival partners with Metal to present Essex Writers House, a popular annual programme. Across the month, we look forward to sharing a range of events, workshops and sharings for writers across our brilliant county. Essex Writers House invites anybody interested in writing to take part, including beginners, established authors, book lovers, families and storytellers of all kinds.

Being anchored to Chalkwell Hall, the events, sharings and workshops offer views across the Thames Estuary (from the attic studio which houses the free bookable Writers Hot Desks), cosy spaces for informal sharings and access to the beautiful surrounding grounds of Chalkwell Park, with settings which offer plenty of space and inspiration to celebrate the written word.

Programme highlights for Essex Writers House 2022 include free 1:1 mentoring sessions with All Stories, Party On : A Writers Shindig hosted by Jo Overfield, Writing The Short Film with Maria Solecki and Essex Film Collective and Character LAB for families with illustrator Sarah Judd. A series of live performances take place towards the end of the month, including interactive theatre installation In Her Shoes from Blown Fuse Theatre and the debut of Rice & Peas, a three-course, three-act immersive dining experience from Mia Jerome.

All events and opportunities are bookable via Eventbrite and take place at Chalkwell Hall, in the grounds of Chalkwell Park, Southend on Sea.
