In 2018, we ran our first Retreat in Wiltshire, UK. In 2019, we launched our monthly Supper Club Sessions in London. When Covid struck in 2020 we pivoted our Write Club Sessions online - running digital programs to bring writers from all over the world together. Over the course of lockdown, more than 150 people joined our bi-weekly remote writing sessions. 

In January 2022, we began a 24 month partnership with Soho House to run the writer's development program for Soho Works.
We're excited to continue this partnership for 2024.

Today, Susanna and Matt run Write Club at Soho alongside their respective careers within the worlds of writing, live events and filmmaking.

Louis is a writer, filmmaker, musician and chef from London. Writing has formed a thread that he’s followed on an inward journey into self. Through joy, heartbreak, love and despair, writing has illuminated his emotional landscape. 


Louis wordsmith power is only matched by his prowess in the kitchen. As the resident chef of our Supper Clubs, Louis serves up three courses of incredble vegan-wizardy for our guests.

'May... I Have This Dance', a short film written and co-directed by Louis, was the winner of Best Short at the Discover Film Awards.
