About Edinburgh All-Comers Writers Club

Update (17/1/17): Please note that this group no longer meets. The website is being kept for archive purposes only.

Update (28/9/16): Please note that we have moved to meeting weekly on Thursday evenings until further notice! Our Facebook group has the latest news.

The Edinburgh All-Comers Writers Club was is a democratically-organised and convivial group which met meets every Tuesday evening for the purpose of encouraging creative writers and poets of all abilities, including beginners and accomplished authors.

Participants are welcome to bring along a short sample of whatever they’re working on to read to the group – though there is no pressure if you don’t fancy reading anything out, you don’t have to. Just come along and join us for what will surely be the most intellectually-stimulating and enjoyable thing you will do on a Tuesday evening!

If you are reading, try and bring around 8 copies of your work, so everyone can read along. All types of creative work are accepted. Each reading will be followed by a constructive discussion and general writing-related banter.

The group meets from 7-10pm every Tuesday Thursday in the back room at Sofi’s Bar, 63-65 Henderson Street. It really is a lovely venue for the group!
