The Glasgow Writers Group has been running for quite a few years now as a space for writers to meet and have their work critiqued by their peers.
We used to run one meeting each week, alternating between our busy Thursday meeting and quieter Tuesdays. Given the current Covid situation, we've moved online to a meeting once every 2 weeks on Thursdays only. You're welcome to attend from wherever you are!
The atmosphere is casual and friendly (everyone is invited to the pub afterwards), while also giving helpful and critical feedback.
We ask new members to attend one meeting before submitting work so that they can see one session in action and decide if it's right for them. Anyone is welcome to come along and observe or give feedback to the writers.
Writers can submit their work to us for a meeting by e-mail, until midnight 3 days before the meeting takes place (currently a Monday). We send out each submission via our Meetup mailing list as soon as possible to allow you to read them ahead of time, and to then present your critique to the author at the meeting.
The group holds a wide variety of writers at every level of experience and we all bring something different to the table.
