The Write Offs – a new writing community in South Wales

Today I have finally got the rollerball rolling and started a writing club, something I have wanted to do for a long time now. I have been putting it off until I finished my A363 Advanced Writing Course with the Open Uni but I just want to get it started so that I have something to discipline myself by the time I finish my final piece in May.

I already run (in the loosest meaning of the word ‘run’) a bookclub called Reading Between the Wines¬†and a handful of us have decided we will stay on after it and hone our writing skills. I am going to use some of the materials that I have been exposed to during my course, along with other writing hints and tips that I have picked up along the way, to give some activities to the group. I want people to become more confident writers and to get used to sharing their work.

If people are happy with sharing any of their work on my blog then I will post some here.

Anyone who wants to join can find more information by joining the facebook group:
