Edinburgh Creative Writers Club meets every Monday at 7pm in The Links Hotel, Alvanley Terrace, Bruntsfield. (just up from the old James Gillespies school building. Frequent buses. The number 23 stops pretty much outside and the number 27 stops at Gilmore Place near the King's Theatre.

The Sunday group, the Rogue Writers, meet on Sunday afternoons in the back room of Patisserie Florentine, Stockbridge. Most people bring something to read and the range style/form, is wide. We've heard poetry, short stories, children's stories, flash fiction, scripts, novels, even ideas ..... and have had discussions over all sorts of things (some even writing related!) including submitting to agents/publishers and dealing with writer's block.

Everyone is welcome, and there's no need to read if you don't want to. However, if you do read you must print off, say, seven or eight copies to hand around. Due to background noise, it's much easier for the rest of the group to follow and give practical criticism. For prose, up to two thousand words is about right. For poetry, one to two poems allows the group time to absorb, discuss and even give critique.
