Fosseway Writing Group

FOSSEWAY WRITERS is a long-established Newark group which holds monthly meetings at Knight’s Court social room, Baldertongate on the first Thursday of each month from 7 to 9pm. There is a varied programme of speakers or workshops in all genres and we also hold two social events a year. Membership is a reasonable £12 per annum and members pay an additional 50p per monthly meeting at Knight's Court. Visitors are always welcome to our Knight's Court meetings for a small contribution of £1 towards costs.

In addition to the speaker evenings, informal opportunities to read work in progress or themed pieces provide members with feedback and encouragement. There are also open competitions in different genres. 

Our Fosseway Writers' blog whilst still in its early stages, is now up and running, with a few members' stories and some other writings, information and contact details.

January 5th - Nick Rowe. Workshop presentation on creating a blog and launch of poetry competition.

February 2nd - Megan Taylor, "Getting your Short Stories out there".

March 2nd - Julie Malone. "Writing Fantasy" and closing date for poetry competition. Launch of flash fiction competition.

Full details of the rules and information regarding the poetry competition can be obtained by contacting Diane or Jackie at Fosseway Writers and from our blog.
Competition information and rules should be obtained from us before sending in any entries. Please do not send in entries without reading this information carefully as we will not accept any that do not conform to our rules.

Occasionally, Knight's Court meetings have had to be changed to another venue, due to work being carried out in the hall. If you intend to come along to one of our meetings, it is probably best to confirm the venue with Diane at the email address given above.
