Who are Reading Writers?

We are a small and varied group of people of all ages who are united in our love for words.

We encompass performance poets and stand-up comedians as well as writers of autobiography, local history, romantic fiction, crime fiction, science fiction, fantasy and just plain fiction.

Some of us have been published, some are still looking for a publisher, and some of us just write for sheer joy.

We believe first and foremost that writing is an activity to be enjoyed, and any further rewards are a bonus. Each of us is happy to give help and support to everybody else.

How do I join?

Please send an email to info@readingwriters.co.uk for more information. At present Reading Writers has a waiting list for membership and so far this year we have received more interest than we can cope with. Unfortunately both our membership and our waiting list are currently closed.

When do we meet?

We meet on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month in a meeting room at RISC (Reading International Solidarity Centre) in London Street, Reading. The formal meeting starts at 7.15pm with the minutes, a platform for the successes of our members, and news. We try to keep these formalities as brief as possible so that we can move as quickly as possible to the business of the evening. The room is available from 7pm for informal conversation.The meeting closes at 10pm, but some members like to carry on more informally in the Great Expectations pub next door.
