Edinburgh Writers' Club

Welcome to the website of the Edinburgh Writers' Club. We are a community of writers in the Edinburgh area and beyond, with an annual programme of competitions, workshops and expert speakers.  Our 2020-21 programme starts on 14 September.

The Club meets in the Grosvenor Hotel near Haymarket. During the restrictions on social distancing we shall have meetings using Zoom technology.

Membership is excellent value and offers the following benefits:
  • Sixteen meetings per year, with a varied programme of speakers covering all genres of writing.
  • Membership of and access to the Scottish Association of Writers (SAW) conferences and competitions.
  • Entry into club competitions. Competitions are judged by established writers who provide feedback on entries.
  • Opportunity to meet fellow writers and share your work, your challenges and your successes.
  • Access to any discounts the club has negotiated for members.
  • Social events.
  •  Regular updates about competitions, publishing opportunities and events.

New members describe the club as 'pragmatic, helpful, friendly, involving, cheerful, wide-ranging, for beginners as well as published writers, informative, non-threatening.'
