Sunday Write Together

  • 5 days ago · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Writing can be difficult and lonely. Sometimes we need to get out and away from our own distractions and excuses. Pubs, cafes and parks are nice but wouldn't it also be good to be part of a group of writers?


So let's work quietly together, gently encouraging each other to soldier on, and minding each others things when we have to go to the loo...

THE IDEA: We are a group of serious writers that meet somewhere comfortable and write for a set period.

Each person works on their own and sets their own targets. What you write is entirely up to you. But here is the difference: you are not alone. Others are around you, typing, scribbling or looking out into the distance. Their company will help you stay focused, stop you from drifting, and keep on writing.

PART 1: WRITING SESSION


This is the serious part of the meeting:
* Distractions must be kept to a minimum, so no mobile phones or talking. Just pretend you're in a library. Sssh! If you really have to be noisy then do it away from the group.
* Writers work on their own projects. You measure your own progress and success.
* It's not a critique group or a workshop with teachers/mentors or writing exercises.

PART 2: SOCIAL
This is when we take time afterwards free to talk, socialise and share experiences with fellow writers. Almost anything goes. It is also perfectly acceptable to come just for the writing and leave politely straight after. Your writing always comes first.

WHAT YOU NEED
Bring your unfinished project e.g. novel, short story, screenplay, poem etc.
Bring pen & paper, computer or whatever you like using. If it's electronic please check the battery will last because venues might not have power sockets available.
