What we're about
Welcome! We're a fiction writing group of like-minded individuals gathering for writing encouragement, advice and support. Read on for more about us and how we roll.
We exist to give emerging fiction writers a place to find writing support, community and opportunities to develop their writing skills. Join us and learn more about finding the right publisher, editing your own work and how to write more frequently. Our workshops are designed to allow new writers to become more confident in their understanding and approach to good storytelling.
Our group was founded in June 2006 in a lovely pub near Liverpool Street with only a few members and now we're a bustling community of 4,000 so we must be doing something right! Most of us are in the process of writing fiction at every stage, but it doesn't matter if you've been writing for years, or just a few short months, we're here for every kind of writer and we'd love to meet you.
On that, we don't believe in groups where everyone is forced to share/contribute/offer feedback *shudder* so we'll never pressure anyone to read before they're ready. Read more from Lisa on what makes a quality writing group.
NOTE: All membership requests are reviewed by Lisa or Elizabeth before approval so please answer the questions we've asked in a sentence or two. You can do better than one word answers.
That's all for now. We hope to meet you very soon and happy writing!
