Are you someone who has always felt you have a short story or even a book in you? Then our small, friendly group could be just what you need to improve your technique and discuss your problems with sympathetic, like-minded writers. Most of our members enjoy writing for fun and we share our writing in a relaxed, supportive setting.
While those members with greater expertise willingly provide assistance within the group, this is not a teaching group for absolute beginners. We do expect potential members to be able to demonstrate a knowledge of creative writing or to be able to submit a sample of their work to ensure that the group is suitable. Access to a word processor is highly desirable.
We are continuing to meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month, 2 – 4pm, in the Osbourne Room at the Viables Craft Centre. However, we plan to move to the Ridgway Centre in April. 2023.
Currently we are embarking on a Round Robin - where each member writes a chapter of an ongoing story entitled The Mystery of the Black Dam Ponds.

Venue: Osbourne room, Viables Community Centre, The Harrow Way, Basingstoke RG22 4BJ
