What we’re about

Meet other writers in and around Dubai to share your experiences in getting started in writing, get advice, sharing ideas, and creating projects.
This is a social group so please come along to our events if you can! We meet every Sunday at 5p. Please check individual meet ups for the details.

All writers and would-be writers are welcome, whether you've never written a thing or you're a published author.

Hello fellow writers and artists of all sorts!

The DWG was founded in January 2005 and has a venerable history in the Dubai cultural scene. We're a group of amateur, professional, enthusiast writers, and all things in between. We focus both on writing and connecting with other writers and artists. Whether you're looking to improve your writing, chat about writer problems, or even just get writing, we have events for all

If you're here purely to plug your work or to get your work reviewed, you're in the wrong place. We all share our work, discuss our work and hopefully some of us will work together to create new ideas. But I invite you to come to our events and meet others in the group.

We have two long running groups, a critique group and a sit-and-write group, and are expanding into even more activities. Music and writing, brainstorming, writers' block, learning craft from published novels, and hopefully more, both specifically for writing and connecting with other Dubai artists.

You can see our events here: EVENTS.

Thanks again for joining and I look forward to meeting you at the next event!
