We are a group of published, established and aspiring writers, meeting in Harpenden with members coming from a wide area.  At our monthly meetings we have an entertaining and educational event programme. 
Do you want to write?  Are you looking for new ideas?  Do you like to talk writing with like-minded people?  Here is an opportunity to meet new contacts, develop your writing skills and make friends.  Why not come along to one of our meetings. 
We meet on the first Friday of each month at 12 Southdown Road (The Friends' Meeting House) with a programme that runs from September to July (no meeting in August).  We have meetings led by professional writers, in addition to Readarounds, special events, and annual prose and poetry writing competitions.

There is equally some writing which may well have been written during the past few weeks about incidents that are barely out of the newspapers or digital media, these are equally tinged with an emotional engagement.."
