Hothouse Project


Storm Books is very proud to be hosting THE HOTHOUSE PROJECT, an exclusive series of writing workshops with the acclaimed journalist and award-winning author Charles Shaar Murray. Charles takes the participants though the techniques and disciplines expected of any professionally-minded writer or budding journalist. These eight-week courses consists of weekly 90-minute practical lessons, assignments and discussions held in a pleasant location near the cafés and restaurants of West Hampstead, a few minutes from the tube station.

Places are strictly limited and will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis. A unique opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade first-hand from the man who changed the face of British music journalism and went on to write some of the most memorable books about seminal musical icons such as Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie and John Lee Hooker. Look out for more in our Writers Presents series.  Don’t miss this extraordinary experience. A selection of the student course assignments can be read on the Hothouse Project 2010/2013 Coursework page. Plus coming soon our new range of courses for current and past students for the coming year.
