I started this group as I am a (sadly still unpublished!) writer who would love the support, disciple and fun of being in a writing group but struggled to find one that I felt i fitted in with. Being a young(ish) writer in my twenties I thought it would be a good idea to start a group for people like myself (youngish writers) who would like to be part of a writing group. The idea is that the group would be for writers in their 20s-30s (though that is not a hard and fast policy and I leave it up to you to decide what young(ish) means!). The group is basically for people who love writing. Whether you just do it for fun or are looking to get that novel published, you are most welcome to come along. Poetry, short stories, non-fiction, articles-anything goes.
The idea would be to start out fairly informally with some meet-ups where people can socialise and maybe share some of their writing (if they want to). Hopefully this will branch out into more structured meet-ups which could include sharing our writing, writing nights, guest speakers, workshops etc.
The group will be based primarily in central Milton Keynes but as it grows it could easily branch out.
I'm hoping this could be the start of a beautiful writing group!
