A writer’s confidence is easily damaged. Everyday life is demanding, and lots of gifted writers struggle to keep regular writing from slipping down their list of priorities. If you’ve lost confidence in your own voice, or if you think you’d benefit from regular deadlines, a good writers’ circle can make all the difference.
The Garnethill Writers’ Group gives support and encouragement to writers finding it hard to go it alone. It meets once a month in a Zoom meeting online, to discuss participants’ writing and offer helpful feedback. The group is very friendly and informal, and suitable for beginners and more experienced writers alike. The meetings are open to anyone, and there’s no obligation to sign up for future sessions.
You’re welcome to join us if you’re looking for support and encouragement in your writing. Please contact me for further details.
The next meetings are:
17th July 2023
21st August 2023
Here’s how it works:
- Everyone emails a piece of writing to the co-ordinator, Cathy McSporran, a week before the meeting date.
- Cathy distributes all the pieces to the people who are going to attend.
- Everyone reads over what the others have submitted beforehand.
- Everybody comes along to the Zoom meeting, gets and receives feedback and encouragement, and figures out what their next step is. (If you can’t attend the meeting in person, you’re welcome to give and receive your feedback via email.)
The cost is £15 per session (£10 concessionary rate). There’s no obligation to sign up for any later meetings – just come along and see what you think.
If you’d like to sit in on a session without submitting anything, you’re welcome to attend an initial meeting free of charge.
