Walsall Writers' Circle

Encouraging writers since 1966

Welcome to Walsall Writers' Circle!  Encouraging writers since 1966

Walsall Writers' Circle is for anyone who writes or wants to write.  Beginners and published writers are equally welcome to join us.  We meet monthly to discuss writing and share information on markets and techniques.

We are a working group trying for professional standard in our writing but we encourage everyone to join in discussions.  Even those not yet published are readers and have valid opinions to offer

We have a varied programme of talks, discussions and workshop evenings where members are able to read their own work and have it discussed by the group, who try to give constructive criticism and help with problems.

The Circle is a growing, thriving group with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.  During the 50 years we have been running (2016 is our 50th anniversary!), a number of members have had first novels published in Britain and abroad, others have won national awards and still more have achieved publication in magazines, newspapers, on TV and radio and the stage.  

Why not come along and join us?

We've made a change to the programme. In May we are pleased to announce that we have the opportunity of hosting a Black Country poetry workshop led by poet Emma Purshouse, funded by Offa's Press in conjunction with their anthology 'Black Country Poetry', to be released Autumn 2017. 


It will be looking at the Black Country today, not dwelling too much on the horrors and splendours of the past.
Do come along and join us! 


The programme for 2016-17 is now available! Please click on the Programme tab to find it.

...Barbara Carr for her piece on the theme 'an invention'. 'Perkins' Purple' gives a fascinating insight into the discovery of  chemical dyes and Barbara's entry was a very worthy winner. Congratulations!
