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. 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.

2. 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:
