Hello, are you a fiction writer/author based in London? And looking for a group of 2,500+ like-minded individuals? Congratulations. You've found it.

London Writers' Cafe is a creative writers' group where any creative writer can volunteer to read their own work for instant feedback in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. So, if you seek a group to help you move your FICTION WRITING(only!) forward, join us for regular critique sessions, publishing talks and group socials - we have it on good authority that you'll enjoy it. But if you're unsure, sign up (for free), come along to a critique night and if you find it's not for you, no harm done.

For what's up next, please see our calendar of critique sessions, workshops and publishing talks with some of the industry's finest, and (rollicking) good socials. We meet in a venues close to Liverpool St/Holborn stations but are expanding to other locations very soon.

As for reading your stuff, that only happens once you feel ready; you'll never be pressured to share anything, or offer feedback, until you volunteer to do so. We believe in giving the opportunities - completely up to you when you take advantage of them.

For creative fiction writers, it's completely free to join (and it always will be) but we have to charge for meetings and special events to cover costs.

Still with me? Questions, comments, queries? Get in touch via email or Twitter, read more details on How it works or what others have to say in our latest reviews.

We hope to meet you soon and happy writing!

Not a writer but have something you'd like to share or promote to our group? Please make a post on our Facebook community, tweet to @ldnwriterscafe or email us and we'll reply as soon as possible.

A couple of things to note, to join LWC you should:

- write novels, plays, monologues, scripts, screenplay, short stories, poems and the like (i.e. any FICTION writing project)
- live or work in London, or close enough to attend our meetings
- want to meet a friendly and supportive group of like-minded individuals
- Be starting to write, actively writing, editing/drafting, submitting to agents, agented, or published (it really doesn't matter to us).

All applications are considered individually by me (Lisa) so please take the time to fill out our quick profile then I can quickly approve your request and you can come along to your first meetup. Whoop.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
