Writers` Circle 2 is a small, very informal group with a wide range of interests and experience. At each meeting the day, time and venue for the next meeting is arranged. This allows great flexibility for the members and accommodates holidays, grandparent commitments and the like.
We invite interested people to come along to meetings as a guest in the first instance, to see if the group meets their needs. In the meeting everyone has the opportunity to read their work, be it a set task, non-fiction article, story or poem. Constructive feedback is given aided by ample refreshment. A writing task is usually set for members to complete for the next meeting: there is always discussion and agreement about this.
One of the aims of the group is to encourage members to aim for publication of their writing, whether it is by way of competitions, magazine articles or a book. We have seen some success here, aided by workshops that we have organised/attended and participation in writing festivals, especially Winchester Writers' festival.
