Looking for a Writers’ Group?

We are always pleased to welcome new members - 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 - on Zoom until further notice. Email us to arrange a trial visit - no charge to attend a trial meeting.

Fees

Subscriptions are on a pay-as-you-attend basis, currently £3.00 per session – no annual membership fee! The fees, which pay expenses such as the hire of the meeting room, guest speakers, and publishing anthologies, also includes tea, coffee and biscuits at half-time. During the Covid-19 pandemic, fees are £5,00 per term, payable at the beginning of each term (provide your own tea and biscuits).

Our Membership

At present we have around 40 members, about half of whom attend on a regular basis. While most live in the Reading area, we have a few members abroad (France, Hungary, Turkey and Australia). Members’ work includes novels, short stories, memoirs, children’s books, poetry, journalism and autobiographies. Some members have been published, others have never put creative pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) and came to us initially for some encouragement.

What We Do

We encourage members to read their work for constructive comment by other members. We also invite guest speakers to give us the benefit of their knowledge and experience. Past speakers have included Colin Dexter (Inspector Morse), Robert Harris (Enigma, Fatherland, Pompei and Imperium) and John Jenkins, (editor and publisher of Writers' Forum). Throughout the year we run competitions which are free for members to enter. Some are judged by external judges and others by members’ votes. We endeavour to publish occasional collections or anthologies of our work. All members are invited to contribute to these publications – see the Publications page for details of past productions.

Come to a Meeting

To find out more about us, email us (see below). We will be glad to answer your questions and arrange for you to attend one of our meetings – no charge! Note, you don't need Zoom installed on your device to join a meeting - just a web browser.
We’re a friendly bunch, into all sorts…
