Leicester Writers’ Club is a community of writers based in and around Leicester. Many club members are published; all are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in their writing.
The club was founded over 60 years ago, and its many members write within a wide range of genres. We have writers of poetry, novels, short stories, children’s fiction, non-fiction, screenplays, and several award-winning bloggers.
The main purpose of the club is to provide a supportive environment for members to critique work-in-progress, ask for and pass on tips and advice, share the occasional failure, and celebrate the many successes. The club also provides access to information on writing competitions, writing courses, possible markets, and opportunities to read and/or promote work at public events. Find out more about membership on our Membership Page.
In addition to the Thursday club nights and speaker evenings, Leicester Writers’ Club organises social events for its members, such as the summer Garden party, and the winter Annual Awards Dinner where we celebrate members’ achievements with awards in various writing categories, including one for fortitude!
There is a residential weekend in May that is both social and informative, at an atmospheric old manor house in the Cotswolds. This has proved so popular that we also run day workshops on a Saturday for those who can’t get away for an entire weekend, or who just can’t get enough.
Leicester Writers’ Club runs a very active e-mail forum, is on Facebook and twitter @leicwritersclub.
