This group is for anyone in and around Lewes who wants to meet other writers, get feedback about their own work and take their writing to the next level.
Unlike many other Writers' Groups, we don't write during our sessions or do exercises together. We're a peer critique group, and each meetup we workshop two or three of our members' pieces. Writers all have the chance to submit their Work In Progress in advance and get feedback from group members. So if you want to find likeminded people to help you improve your writing, this is the group for you!
It will work well for anyone with an ongoing project, but you are also welcome if you just want to get used to the idea of showing your work to people and giving others constructive critique. All we ask is that you are respectful, considerate, reliable and come ready to participate at each session.
There are no rules about the kind of writing we accept, although we are slanted slightly towards fiction rather than creative non-fiction. We believe that all writing can be valuable and fun: sci fi or women's commercial, fantasy or literary. Members can be at any stage of their career, too. We think that storytellers always have something to learn from each other, and something to give as well.
