The Original Writers on Zoom

​​Please come along to our online meetings. Even if you are just starting out and are just interested in writing, but have nothing to read, come along and experience the evening. As sometimes the best motivation to write is to hear how others got there before you.

​We have many members: poets, novelists, playwrights, scriptwriters, historians, philosophers. It is a rich mix and makes a lively evening. Bring your work, whether these are short stories, poems, essays or just ideas and join us for an evening of chatting, sharing, planning, commiserating, pontificating – and all things about writing. This is the perfect place to workshop your writing.

​Occasionally writers ask if they can read from their published work. This doesn’t work for us as part of the enjoyment for listeners is in giving feedback. A published book is like a word carved in stone. There is nothing we can say and that is most disappointing. So we stick to work in progress, whether that is a first or tenth draft. That’s when the group works best – both for the writer and the listener.
