The idea is to provide a space once a month for people who like to write prose fiction (or poetry and screenplays - basically, anything except non-fiction) to get together, share their work, and give encouragement and constructive criticism. All types of fiction welcome (including scripts!). We're also trialling more sociable 'writer chats' on an informal basis where we meet for coffee and conversation about writing.
Membership costs £6 for a year to cover the admin fees we're charged by Meetup. No, you can't just rock up to a meeting without joining the group through Meetup first. Sorry but membership on the site is a prerequisite. So for all the people saying they want to come to a meeting before they pay: fine. But you need to attend one within three months of joining.
