About us

Our group was formed in 1987 to give writers in the Horsham area a chance to share their work and benefit from friendly, helpful feedback. Over the years we’ve evolved to become a lively and inspiring community for anyone with an interest in writing. Some members are published writers, others are keen to be published, and some write purely for fun. All are welcome!

We meet once a month in Horsham, on the third Thursday of each month, from 7:30pm – 10pm. Members are free to bring along any kind of writing – whether poetry, short stories, novel extracts or non-fiction work.  At the end of each meeting a theme or subject is suggested for the following month. However there’s absolutely no obligation to write to the theme; feel free to follow your own imagination!

As well as our regular monthly meetings, we hold occasional writing-related workshops. We also organise annual ‘in-house’ competitions, where members vote (anonymously) for their favourite piece of writing.

If you’re interested in joining us, why not come along to see how we work? The first meeting is free; you’ll find all the information you need on our Membership page.

Happy writing and we hope to see you soon!
