Weston offshoot of Writing! Bristol.

A relaxed, informal group for writers of all kinds. Everyone is welcome, whether you're a professional writer, or just starting out. All you need is passion for the written word, and a desire to produce your own.

The Weston group will be smaller to start but I hope to to end up as broad as the Bristol one.  I'm not going to duplicate all the Bristol meetups and workshops because it will be too much work, so this will be strictly WSM.

If you're a Westoner and may be interested in travelling to Bristol for the occasional workshop or literary evening, I suggest joining the Bristol group too so you know what's going on.

Types of sessions:

Write Together: Does what it says on the tin. Turn up and write! No pressure to share or do anything other than write in companionable silence (although we do tend to have a good chat after).  More on that here.

The below sessions are not set up in Weston yet ( Bristol only so far), but I hope to as the group grows:

Knowledge Sharing Sessions:  We have all sorts of writers in the group with different levels of experience and skillsets. The knowledge sessions will take the form of informal, yet structured discussions around a topic of interest (e.g. characterisation or narrative voice) where one member of the group leads with a talk/presentation and everyone else pitches in. These are generally aimed at amateur writers but everyone is welcome. More here.

Critique Group: a structured workshop for mutual critiquing.

Drinks and social: We work hard. We deserve the occasional break. Keep an eye on the meetups for the occasional drinks night. 

Other stuff: We'll also often get word of outside workshops or submission opportunities. Depending on the nature, they'll either turn up on the meetup as an activity or be added to the Submissions Thread in the discussion boards.  

Don't see what you want? Let me (Sandra) know. One of the great things about being in charge of a group of writers is getting to hear all the wonderfully creative ideas everyone comes up with for meetups.  If you don't see what you want, we can add it if there's enough interest and I have someone willing to host. 

We're also on Facebook! 

If you're interested in hosting, send me a message and I can get you set up.
