Writers' groups

If you're a budding writer, regardless of your experience, come and join one of the friendly and welcoming writers' groups in Westminster libraries.

1. Queen's Park creative writing group

Tales from the park

Tales from the park is a new monthly, creative writing group aimed at beginners or people with no experience in writing. The theme for November we will be working on character development with "Portrait of an unknown person", developing both writing and story telling skills. Come along and enjoy!

Beginners welcome, no experience necessary.

Second Monday of the month 6pm to 7.30pm at Queen's Park Library

The next meeting will be on Monday 12 November.

2. Victoria Library writers' group

Drop-in writing group

A friendly writer's meetup for people who want to share their writing or be inspired to write their own work. New members are always welcome.

Booking not required, just turn up on the first Monday of each month, 6pm to 7.15pm at Victoria Library. Please contact the library to confirm details of the next meeting.

3. Westminster writers' group (Marylebone)

Westminster Writers was founded in 1996 and is the longest-established of the writing groups in Westminster libraries. Today, the group aims to provide a supportive and constructive workshop for works-in-progress. The group's 2007 collection, Writing on Dentistry, is available from Marylebone library.

Writers and readers who live, work, study in or are visiting Westminster are invited to come to Marylebone Library on Monday evenings (6.30pm to 7.45pm) to discuss all things literary. Ask at the desk and one of the librarians will direct you.

Bring a book, article or blog you are reading which you think is (or isn’t) well written, a sample of your latest piece of work - even if it isn’t finished yet, your advice to others trying to write, or simply yourself. Also bring questions and recommendations of any writing workshops, courses or books about writing or subjects linked to the creative act of writing.

Here are some ideas to get you started:
