The Coffee Work Sleep Creative Community or CWS Creatives as it has come to be known, was born out of a desire to bring together female creative entrepreneurs that feel uncomfortable with traditional networking events.

Working on your own can get lonely, and living your business life online can leave you craving some face to face time with people that just get it. Trying to find ‘your tribe’ or just other people choosing the path of self employment or business owning can be so difficult – let alone making your business profitable and finding customers and clients. This is where networking is needed.

The ethos behind Coffee Work Sleep Creatives is simple, we are a female only group, we believe in community over competition, we value authenticity and we are definitely not ‘hustling’ #girlbosses. It’s a group for female creatives that work for themselves or by themselves that live in the Preston area and the North West of England in general.

We started off as a small facebook group in early 2018 and since then have grown massively and now host monthly Meet Up events, child friendly events and socials. Now we have an online home on this website, as well as a Patreon Community for our members to know about the upcoming events, plug in to helpful rescources and feel part of a wider community.

The group was founded by local business owner, Morgana Loze-Doyle. You can find out more about her in Meet The Founder
