February: Read & Write Night

We’re happy to say that Wednesday’s Read and Write night will take place at our usual venue, the Nottingham Mechanics, from 7 to 9 pm.

Sadly, the current bridge closures remain in place, but actions to improve traffic flow around the city centre have improved traffic flow.

Whether travelling by road or public transport, we’d still recommend allowing extra time to travel into the city centre on Wednesday evening.

Join Us For A Writers’ Meet-Up…

UPDATE: Apologies, we have cancelled this month’s Friday meet up.

We’ll resume our fourth Friday get-together on October 25th, when the new Waterstones Coffee Shop will be open.

If you are unaware of the reason for this cancellation, please see the information below.

The Costa Coffee shop in Waterstones is undergoing work; When completed it will become a Waterstones Coffee shop.

The current estimate for reopening is the end of September, with the possibility that it may not complete until the first week of October. It has needed additional work that has disrupted the original schedule.






September: Read & Write Night…

We’re back from our summer break with our new style Read & Write Night which will remain a regular part of our programme alongside: workshops, speakers, annual competitions and Christmas social events.

This month there will be discussion, manuscript reading with constructive comments, as well as a writing exercise for those who want to concentrate on developing their writing skills.

Our aim is to keep the format  of the evening flexible so you get the most out of the meetings. This will also give you the opportunity to experience the different elements we offer.

Visitors are welcome, but we hope you’ll like what we offer and take up membership…
