Hello and a warm welcome to the Salisbury Writing Circle.
We are the largest, liveliest and friendliest fiction writing community in South Wiltshire. Formed in Spring 2015 (though a previous version of the circle ran for many years, with the esteemed William Golding as honorary president), we have over 300 members, ranging from enthusiastic beginners through to internationally published novelists. And through the group, the Salisbury Literary Festival was established in 2017, which is run and organised by Writing Circle members.
Salisbury Writing Circle gets together once a month at Sarum College in the Cathedral Close: the sessions begin with workshopping on a particular aspect of writing; we then usually have a guest author to come along, who talks and takes questions on their own work; we then retire to a local hostelry to carry on talking books over a glass of wine.
The sessions are led by local author Tom Bromley, who has taught novel writing for over a decade for the Faber Academy, the Professional Writing Academy and now Reedsy. There is no charge for attending: the aim of the group is to build and grow a supportive community of local writers. We want to keep the sessions free so that anyone interested in writing and meeting other writers can come along, regardless of circumstance (we remain extremely grateful to the lovely Sarum College for the use of their room, and ask for a small voluntary donation to continue this).
If you are interested in joining, please contact Tom Bromley at email@example.com or find us on social media on Facebook or Twitter.
Forthcoming dates are as follows:
Wednesday 3 May with special guest JS Monroe
Wednesday 7 June with special guest Rachel Barnett
Wednesday 12 July
All regular sessions 7.30pm at:
Sarum College, 19 The Close, Salisbury, SP1 2EE
Many thanks for dropping by and hope to see you soon!
