About Us

rosie_the_riveterWe share work-in-progress and news of members’ latest submissions.

We offer fair, positive and creative criticism of each others’ work.

We publish the odd anthology and run the occasional workshop given by members or invited speakers.

We stage book-launches for members’ latest books.


We meet fortnightly on Thursdays, 11 AM to 1 PM
at La Rosa Hotel.
No meetings in August, or over the Christmas/New Year period.

  • For the dates of this year’s meetings, see the Calendar.
  • For the latest news plus minutes of our meetings, see the Home page.

Coronavirus lockdown, 2020

During the lockdown we are, of course, no longer meeting at La Rosa Hotel. Instead we are organising low-tech “virtual meetings” every Thursday via plain old email. Members send me poems and things each Thursday and I compile these, plus members’ comments, into “proceedings” which I later circulate to members. This keeps down bitty emails, which would clutter our inboxes.

To enquire about this scheme, please use the Contact page.
