ABOUT

WHO WE ARE, AND WHAT WE DO
The Notts Writing Group was formed in 2010 by Liz Barnes. Although Liz has since left Nottingham to seek pastures new in London, she remains an honorary member because without her, there would be no group.  
Since then, members have come and gone, but the group prevails.
 
We have continually resisted putting the group on a more formal setting, as the informality is what most members seem to appreciate. We have no 'group leader'  - members take turns at leading meetings. 
 
Meetings usually follow the format of an initial section to share news, ideas and update on any current projects. This is then followed by writing exercises, set by that week's leader, to challenge our writing skills. Sometimes, we will focus on a particular aspect of writing: characterisation, setting, dialogue etc. Other times, the exercises are designed purely to let the imagination run wild.
 
Although there is an element of seriousness at times (otherwise we would never have been able to publish two anthologies) the emphasis is on fun. 
 
Some members join the group through a desire to become a published writer and see the group as a way of improving their skills and getting feedback on their work. Others simply write as a way of relaxing after a difficult day at work. It doesn't matter to us: we welcome all ages, all backgrounds, all levels of ability and experience. Variety is the spice of life - and of writing.
