What we're about


Welcome to what is possibly one of the most eccentric and surely the most global meetup group on What are we about? : making friends, socializing, discussing books, writing (short stories, poetry), art, photography, you name it. We enjoy connecting with other like-minded, creative individuals--any age, living anywhere on the planet.

We are few in number, but international in domain. We meet up at various locations to socialize, and for book club discussions, and we also engage online through the Write Thread message board.

Our handful of members are based in England, Ireland, Canada and Ghana. We are also now being joined by some Vancouver-based book club members whose clubhouse, an old discontinued meetup group, fell down during a recent demolition. We have picked up the thread of our book conversations here, and meet about once a month at different locations around town including Hycroft Manor in Vancouver. We are presently reading Vladimir Nabokov and Mary McCarthy.

We plan face-to-face meetups whenever practicable, and have had some great meetups in London, Dublin and Vancouver.

We used to edit the location of this meetup group, and in that way collected a diverse group of members as we worked our way around the globe. We started in London, England. By the time we got to the Cook Islands, changed the location option, and we are now permanently anchored on Rarotonga.

We grow and change constantly, and welcome new members. Please join us.
