DUE TO THE COVID-19 SITUATION WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW MEMBER APPLICATIONS
We will be looking for new members again just as soon as things get back to normal!
If you're a fiction writer, and write in English, Writers in Barcelona might well be the thing for you.
We're looking for enthusiastic, intelligent and creative people to join the group. Let us know if you're more into plot and conflict and character or literary and experimental fiction as we sometimes have an imbalance in favour of one or the other.
We've been going in one form or another for nearly 15 years now and have a great time at our biweekly meetings and social events like our picnics.
Members include the odd professional writer and keen amateurs. It's not a group for beginners and we may ask to see a sample of your work before accepting your application (especially if you are not a native English speaker).
Our main emphasis is on novels and short stories, flash fiction etc. If you're interested mainly in blogging or other forms of non-fiction or just starting out we'd recommend you look for another group or get feedback from family and friends.
We tend to prefer to concentrate on having a smaller but more committed group rather than accumulating hundreds of members who never show up. If your application shows you haven't read this section or it makes basic grammatical errors you won't get approved.
We know this might make us sound a bit demanding but we believe it makes for a better group in the long run so please don't be offended!
