About

The Greenacre Writers was founded in 2009 and is a community not for profit organisation encouraging writing for all. Since then it has expanded into four writing groups: Finish That Novel group, a Writers' Workshop group, a writers Meet-up and a Novel Focus group.

We run various writing workshops, retreats and a festival throughout the year and launched the first Greenacre Writers Short Story Competition in 2011.

The blog is managed by Rosie Canning


Rosie co-founded Greenacre Writers and is organiser of the Finchley Literary Festival. She has written several short stories and flash fiction pieces which have been long/short-listed in competitions: Spilling Ink; The New Writer; Flash 500; The Yellow Room and The Word Hut and published in York Tales, Mslexia, and non-fiction in a local community magazine. 

She completed MA Writing at Middlesex. Rosie is now a Doctoral Researcher at Southampton University, writing a novel and investigating the representation of Care Leavers in Literature.
