Meetings are held on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm, with breaks at holiday times. The venue for the meetings is St Joseph's Church Hall, situated on the corner of Park Lane and Berkshire Drive, Tilehurst, Reading RG31 5JJ (click here for map). Most meetings are devoted to members reading from their own work (typically up to 2000 words), which is commented on by the others present. Members are encouraged to make positive, constructive comments. Members with longer works can also produce copies for others to take away and return with comments. We also arrange workshops and occasional guest speakers. We organise trips to outside talks or workshops and reciprocal visits to other writers' groups.
