Writing for Pleasure – and Profit!

Would you like to see your work in print, or broadcast on radio or television? Performed in the theatre, or made into a film? Come and join us and learn the craft of writing.

 

I joined the club to learn how to tell my story in writing, but I found more than that. I found support, friendship, inspiration, motivation and even a trophy and a book deal! Uuganaa Ramsay

What the club offers

The club offers a variety of speakers, workshops and feedback nights (when members bring their work for constructive criticism). All types of writing are covered by our many published and successful members. There are club competitions adjudicated by experienced writers, both from within the club and from outside. Members are also eligible to attend the Scottish Association of Writers’ Weekend in March.

We also offer, by the way – friendship, fun and plenty of laughs – at no extra cost!
