Members of West Sussex Writers are an eclectic bunch. We have scriptwriters, literary novelists, science fiction writers, poets, saga writers, dramatists, creative writing tutors, children's writers, journalists and biographers – among others - in our midst. Many, but not all, are published. Some have a lifetime of writing experience, others are at the start of their writing career, and a few haven't written anything yet.
Our aim is to help writers in all genres, to encourage their work and offer advice, if wanted, towards publication or gaining a wider readership. We achieve this through a mix of talks, workshops and competitions, offering something different at every meeting.
Our Next Meeting
Thursday 09 February 2017
The February meeting will be split into two halves. The first half will be a manuscript surgery. This will consist of up to 4 manuscripts from members, read in groups and then discussed critically within the group.
The second half of the evening will be an Open Mic - please bring your work to read. Pieces read should be up to a maximum of 7 minutes long. Feedback slips will be available for anyone wishing to provide constructive comment to the writers.
at Goring Methodists Church Hall - start at 7:30pm
Guests welcome - £5 entry (includes free Tea or Coffee)
