Northants Writers’ Ink, a creative writing group based in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, England, meets every three weeks on Mondays at the Friends’ Meeting House, St John Street, Wellingborough NN8 4LG.
We start at 7pm and aim for a 10pm finish. Refreshments are provided. Your first evening is free and then £3 a session. You can pay £45 for the year, thus saving £6.
Some parking is available on the road. Or park for free in Jacksons Lane car park on the opposite side of the High Street and walk about 500 yards to get to the Meeting House.
