Starter Day, Central London

John Simmons, Neil Baker

Begin your Dark Angels journey with a Starter Day and experiment with creative exercises that will take your writing in new directions.

A Starter Day is a one-day immersion into the Dark Angels philosophy. Our writing workshops are all about writing inspiration and finding new ways to write the things we need to write – things that we write every day for work.

Using techniques in storytelling, tone of voice and more, you’ll come away inspired and confident in your own writing and an advocate for better writing in business.

This course is designed as a first step into the world of Dark Angels. But if you’ve worked with us before and just need a day of face-to-face wordy creativity, we’re happy to give returning angels a 25% discount. We also have one 50% discount spot for a scholar – that’s someone who’s new to writing and can’t afford the full fee.


Venue & facilities

The Club Room at the October Gallery is a spacious library room located on the second floor of the building, beautifully lit by stained glass windows.

Founded in 1979, October Gallery is located in central London’s Bloomsbury district. It exhibits innovative, contemporary art from around the world and pioneered the development of the Transvangarde (the trans-cultural avant-garde).

October Gallery has been instrumental in bringing to worldwide attention many of the world’s leading international artists and promotes the very best in contemporary art from around the planet. It’s also a cultural hub in central London for poets, writers and intellectuals, so a perfect venue for a Dark Angels Starter Day.

"Dark Angels is a breath of fresh air ... using different briefs we were able to explore (without the normal limitations) our writing potential. I surprised myself with my creativity. Since returning to the office I have used the practical tips to profoundly change my approach to writing. Led by two English Literature fanatics whose passion and knowledge of this subject is really infectious – it's a must! And, most of all we had fun and met some great people."
