WSW Update

Due to the current situation and the National Guidance to avoid all gatherings we have decided to cancel all meetings for the rest of the season. We hope it will be possible to start again soon. We will keep you advised of changes and developments.

The members' Flash Fiction competition announced at the last meeting will continue, online entries only. The results will be announced on the website in July.


Stay safe and keep writing.
