We’re a right bunch of weirdoes – just ask anyone who’s been to one of our meetings! If you’re looking for a writers’ group it is important you find one that is right for you. That might be us … it might not, but you won’t know unless you come to a meeting, or two. If you feel we’re not right for you, that’s fine. We’re pleased you ‘gave us a go’ and we wish you luck in finding a group that is more in tune with you.
About Wrekin Writers:
Wrekin Writers group has been in existence for many years now … since 1983. Throughout that time, it has grown and flourished to produce a group of talented writers (well we think so anyway!)
In its early years, the group was fortunate enough to have as its President, a local Shropshire writer, by the name of Edith Pargeter, otherwise known as Ellis Peters, author of the Brother Cadfael books.
Today, we have in our midst, winners of national short story competitions, poetry competitions, and writers whose work has appeared in national magazines. There are also authors of local history books and poetry collections. Some members have had books published by traditional commercial publishers, whilst others have gone down the self-publishing route, so we have experience of both sides of the publishing world. And, of course, we also have members who have yet to discover the joy of publication, as well as those who simply enjoy writing for the pleasure it gives them. And why not?
Wrekin Writers are proud members of NAWG – the National Association of Writers Groups
