What we're about

Writers of East Hampshire and West Sussex.

Writing can be a solitary experience and this group exists to provide support and mutual encouragement to others. We write for ourselves, families and friends and, perhaps, to reach a wider audience. We share a passion for writing and, together, we are looking to improve and develop our writing skills through an exchange of ideas, knowledge and experiences, constructive feedback and positive inspiration.

We welcome enthusiastic writers, both published and not, from all backgrounds and skill levels.

You may be a story teller for adults and/or children, novelist or short stories, a poet or a recorder of lives: imagined and real, your own and others. Scripts, Articles, Novellas, Blogs - the only limitation is our own imagination.

People write for a variety of reasons: pleasure, performance, pay, personal growth or self-expression. Whatever the reason, if you would like the company of others who share your interest and think you might gain something from being in a writers group, come along. The group will provide a helpful environment for you to explore and improve your ability through regular meetups.
