London Bridge Writers Group
7pm to 9pm - A chance for willing participants to read out a piece of writing that they have been working on, in order to receive constructive feedback from the group. This is completely voluntary, and the regulars will no doubt have something to read if you only want to listen / critique. The reading time is up to ten minutes (~2000 words). We normally get through between 4 and 6 pieces an evening. Please send texts to: [masked] - everyone usually logs in to this during the meeting to read along on laptops/devices (password will be given out at the meeting). Alternatively bring printouts for others to follow. This is voluntary, but it helps tremendously in understanding and critiquing your work if we can actually have it in front of us rather than just hearing it. 9pm onwards - Get drunk in the pub downstairs... what better time than a Monday night? In seriousness, we normally have a couple of drinks and some lively debates (sometimes about plays/novels/movies - but often not). Those in attendance range from complete novices to well seasoned writers. Whatever your level we would welcome you to the group.

Anything! We have novels, novellas, short-stories, film scripts, plays and poetry. All are accepted (and positively encouraged). With plays and film scripts you will often find willing participants to read the various parts. We are an adult writing group, so there is no restriction on genre.

Location

We meet upstairs in the function room of The Leather Exchange, a lovely pub near London Bridge station. Best of all, we get the venue for free!
