Welcome

Walsall Writers’ Circle is for anyone who writes or wants to write.  We have been encouraging writers since 1966, and meet monthly to discuss writing, share information on techniques and markets and above all encourage and support one another in a helpful, friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

We are a thriving working group trying for a professional standard in our writing but we encourage everyone to join in discussions.  Members of the Circle come from a wide range of experiences and backgrounds, from beginners to published writers; all abilities are equally welcome to join us.

We have a varied programme of talks, discussions and workshop evenings where members are able to read their own work and have it discussed by the group, who provide constructive feedback and help with problems.  View the Circle’s 21/22 programme.

During the 50+ years we have been running (2016 was our 50th anniversary!), a number of members have had first novels published in Britain and abroad, others have won national awards and still more have achieved publication in magazines, newspapers, on TV and radio and the stage. We even run our own internal competitions to offer members something to aim for.

View our Meetings page for information on when and where we meet.

Fifty+ years in Walsall and counting!
