A monthly ‘scratch-salon’ night in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, for writers of all kinds to get together and enjoy each other’s words. Hosted by Adam Sharp, supported by NWN

Devised by New Writing North’s Creative Associate, Adam Sharp, Read Them Your Writes is an informal, fun and supportive space for North-East writers at all stages to meet each other and share new work. Think ‘scratch-night’ meets ‘literary salon’…

Each month there will be a different line-up, as well as some open-mic slots up for grabs on the night. We’ll also run a quick-fire Q&A with prizes for the best questions, and top it all off with music, drinks and a chance to chat to other creatives.

Read Them Your Writes will be held at the Tyneside Irish Centre in Newcastle on the third Thursday of the month from January 2023. Bring a friend, a piece of writing, or just come along and enjoy listening to brand new work from the North-East. Line-up to be announced in January.


Space is limited so we recommend booking your tickets in advance, though standard-price entry will also be available on the door.

All ticket proceeds go toward the cost of running Read Them Your Writes. However, there are three price tiers to make it as accessible as possible – please choose the option you feel most comfortable with when paying. We have included a donation ticket option, for those who are able and wish to support the programme to continue.


The Tyneside Irish Centre is an accessible venue located in Newcastle city centre, with a lift to all floors and accessible toilets. Venue website:
