What we're about

We meet first and third Tuesday of each month at the Battersea Arts Centre and welcome writers from all walks of life as the more varied these opinions, the richer the experience.

We have many members: poets, novelists, playwrights, scriptwriters, historians, philosophers. It is a rich mix and makes a lively evening.

Please do join us. Even if you are just starting out and are just interested in writing, but don't have anything to read, come along and experience the evening. As sometimes the best motivation to write is to hear how others got there before you. Do bring your work, from working on finished pieces of writing, brainstorming ideas, develop notes, even readings from favourite authors. You can try anything and learn everything.

“It's often about the simple things, isn't it? Painting and photography are first about seeing, they say. Writing is about observing. Technique is secondary. Sometimes the simple is the most difficult.” Linda Olsson ------------------------------------------------------------ Dear Writers, We had an excellent meeting last Tuesday with twelve writers present. We talked about outlines. Children's writer R. L. Stine said 'The hardest thing when you sit down to write a book is the plot and making it hang together. An outline allows you to see what you have and to know where you are going. For me, to create the story and have it in front of me before I start to write is totally useful. Then I can sit down and just relax write. I hardly have to think because I have down all the hard part. I have never much enjoyed outlining, but nowadays I can't work without one.' With the Easter Break we are meeting in three weeks on Tuesday 23rd April when we will discuss how to plot. This is another of those Marmite subjects. Come along and share your experiences. Maybe this will change the way you write. Keep writing!
