What we're about
SEOUL WRITERS' COLLECTIVE -- a literary, pot-luck soup kitchen for writers. We exist to support, encourage, and re-energize the poets, yarn-spinners, scribes and storytellers that wander through the streets of Seoul, looking for that one -- creative -- spark.
As of May 2016, we will be a new location--Dan & Chung Cafe, which is located just across from Coreanos in Itaewon.
SWC serves the literary community of Seoul and Korea in three main ways:
• Workshops, where writers can receive honest, but constructive feedback on works in any genre. Information on workshop procedure is available in our "About" page, after joining.
• Open Mic performances, where writers can present their works in front of a supportive, nurturing audience.
• A repository and calendar of events and opportunities for writers around Seoul.
We do our best to maintain a mailing list and online calendar, including an RSS feed. To submit, please drop Christine an email at email@example.com. Submissions close the Friday evening before the workshop so everyone has a chance to read. ^^
SWC is not just a self-contained organization; we cross-pollinate with other writing and creative groups in Korea. If your organization offers opportunities for writers, please let us know by dropping a line to Christine at the above email address, or to any of our organizers. We'll get your organization and events on our calendar.
