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, 23 and also 27 to nearby King's Theatre.
The Sunday group, the Rogue Writers, meet Sunday afternoons in the back room ofFlorentines coffee shop 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 a few copies to hand around. It's much easier for the rest of the group to follow and give practical criticism.
