Hello -

I am an experienced writer looking to form or join a serious writers group for fiction writing. Does anyone know of such a group in or near SE1, preferably on the London Bridge end...or want to join one?

Sorry I do not know of one, but I am very interested in joining one. Perhaps we could set one up?

How about contacting Morley College in Waterloo. They may know of something. If not it would also be a good place to advertise if you are trying to set up a writers group.

Morley is really worth looking at for a whole range of creative stuff. A friend did a creative writing course and found that most others in her group were both very serious and very good. (She was a mum trying to get an evening away from the baby so was a little intimidated.) Many of their courses link in with degree courses at Birkbeck so are of a good standard. Go see, it is a brilliant place to have nearby.

I don't know of one but would be interested in joining one if there was. Also, does anyone know of a book club?

The excellent City Lit. are running a one week course for would-be writers in July. The course fees are 61 for waged, and 31 for concessions. They really are top-notch institution. You can apply on-line for this course at

Hi Everyone -

I agree with the writer above - beginning writers should go to the classes at City Lit...while they offer a range of classes, their fare looks espcially good for people who have been at it for a few years or less. Morley College - mentioned by someone else on this thread - appears better for those (like me) with more experience or publications; I'm considering taking their Thur eve novel course in the autumn because I don't know how else to find a group of experienced writers I trust for feedback. (Alas, I had to leave a brilliant writer's group behind when I moved to London.)

If you're interested in forming a writing group (or just getting together to talk about writing), please contact me directly at categoethals@yahoo.com.

Best wishes,

Hi Eleanor -

A neighbor of mine and I would love to start one. We live near Tower Bridge and think that a group of five or six to start would be ideal. Are you interested? Do you know of others who would be? We could have a preliminary meeting to see if we'd be interested in discussing the same books, etc. Shall we begin a separate book club thread? Ideas, please!

Best wishes,

Would love to join the book club thread. Let me know if you start one.

sorry, I'm a bit dense and this is a genuine serious question... what do writers clubs do? Having penned a few bits in my time, I'm curious.....
