Warwick Writers

 

Are you a storyteller or poet, writing for publication or pleasure? Perhaps you are working on a novel, interested in non fiction, or don’t know where to begin? Warwick Writers is a fun and friendly group which meets once a month in central Warwick.

We provide a supportive, moderated environment for new and experienced writers, to develop their creative writing skills. Themes are given for all our meetings, but you can share any story, poem or non fiction which you have written. You’ll also find us organising extra events for members, and asking authors or other industry professionals to come along to a meeting, and join in with the group.

What To Expect

 

Each Warwick Writers meeting begins with a short discussion of members’ news. There’s always lots to talk about! It’s important to celebrate everyone’s journey, and its success.

We follow a 3 Step plan for the main part of the evening, and you can decide which option you prefer.

There isn’t any obligation to read in Step 1. Come along, sit comfortably, and listen to the other members’ storytelling or poetry.

If you do want to read, Step 2 is there for you to ask us to tell you what we enjoyed most about your writing. Perhaps it’s a particular character, plot twist, imagery or something else?

Step 3 includes Step 2, and our opinion on what could take your words to the next level. Critique will be politely given, and is intended to be constructive.

There’s a 15 minute break halfway through the meeting when we put the kettle on, and open the biscuit tin! Please join us. You will be very welcome!

Upcoming Events

 

Details of forthcoming Warwick Writers meetings are posted here. Why not come along and join in the fun? If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Memoirs’ Writing Workshop
I am very much looking forward to giving the workshop. There’ll be a few ideas on how to organise your initial thoughts, to maximise the time we have available on the 24th. I’ll also be asking you to bring a couple of photos, documents or small objects, again to help source those elusive memories.
As this extra event will only be available to a small number by pre-booking (6 – 8 writers), so that everyone has the opportunity to write and then read their written memoir to the group if they would like to, I should be pleased if anyone who wants to come along would contact me and book a place.
