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 fiction writers a place to find professional writing support, community through our workshops and opportunities to develop their writing skills. Join us and learn more about writing fiction, editing your own work and how to write more frequently. We also talk quite a bit about agents, publishers and competitions. Our workshops are designed to allow our writers to become more confident in their understanding and approach to quality storytelling.

See a full list of every workshop we have planned:

We have members who write from all levels, abilities and genres and we aren't at all snobbish about 'worthiness' or literary merit. All we care about is if the story is well told or if it needs more work. We have writers working on stories for adult, young adult and children.

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 4,300 so we must be doing something right! Most of us are in the process of writing fiction (novels, short stories and scripts) at every stage, but it doesn't matter if you've been writing for years, or mere months, we're here for every kind of fiction 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 our Lisa on what makes a quality writing group.

That's all for now. We hope to meet you very soon and happy writing!
