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 10 November 2016
Enjoy reading? Do you have firm ideas on the books you have finished and would like to share those views with others? Book reviewers now can actively take part online and help spread the word about the books they read - and authors and publishers are increasingly keen to encourage them. In this talk, Sarah discusses how to put together a readable book review and the issues to consider when doing so, how to gain access online and how to get hold of advance review copies from online sites such as Netgalley, in return for an honest review.
She will also discuss the issues around setting up a blog and writing regular book reviews and how to become part of the book blogging community.
at Goring Methodists Church Hall - start at 7:30pm
Guests welcome - £5 entry (includes free Tea or Coffee)
