What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in writing and meeting other writers in the Caversham area. All skill levels are welcome, just bring something to work on and write on. To start, we'll meet biweekly so if you can't make it out one week, hopefully you can make the next. Open to suggestions for great spaces to write! (Everyone is responsible for their own food and drink.)

I'm starting this group as a way to meet other writing enthusiasts, as I've just moved here from Canada! Looking forward to meeting you all.

Writing Feedback Meetup

The Great Expectations

***Submission Deadline - Wednesday 9 October*** Our Feedback Meetings give you the chance to share your work with other writers. All genres welcome. We have time for two pieces each month. First come first served, so indicate your interest in the comments below or send me a message. Members are also welcome to attend simply to provide feedback. We have a central folder for the pieces, which enables attendees to download and read prior to the meeting. **Please send me your work at least two weeks (a week for attendees to read the pieces, and a week's leeway for me to find a replacement if someone drops out) before we meet. Please also be aware the deadline is STRICT and if you miss it you may lose your slot and have to be critiqued another time. I apologize if that sounds harsh, but it's not meant to. Rather, it's just the most efficient way to organize these sessions! Thank you** * The nominal word limit is 3,000, although there is some margin: no one will begrudge you a few hundred more if they're needed to complete your article/chapter/short story! * Please indicate what feedback you'd like. This could be specific, such as comments on the plot or use of language, or general such as whether or not people feel it needs more work. IMPORTANT: Feedback must be constructive. Members' work is confidential and must NOT be shared outside the group.

Writes & Bites

Bina Tandoori

Writes and Bites gives us writers the opportunity to discuss anything and everything writing! It is a 100% social event, so no laptops, pens or paper. Just bring your wonderful self and any questions or topics you want to cover. The format of the evening will vary. We might start off rather organized with a specific writing question or concern. If a few folks start discussing something of interest, while others take the conversation somewhere else, that's fine! The main purpose of this event is to socialize with other writers. (Members are responsible for their own food and drink.)
