SCW is a community writing and publishing organisation which is open to all. Our membership happily encompasses all levels of aspiration and experience from published novelists to those just starting to write and from academics to learning disabled. All are welcome.
Our regular workshops are aimed at encouraging members to find their own voice and experiment with new writing methods and styles. We aim to provide a light-hearted, friendly and supportive environment, where you can discuss your work with like-minded people. All members are encouraged to be actively involved in the running of SCW As well as the weekly group meeting, we hold regular social events.
