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 2019-20 programme starts on 23 September.

The Club meets in the Grosvenor Hotel near Haymarket. Members are eligible for a discount card on food and drink, allowing 20% off throughout the year (excluding special events).

Membership is excellent value and offers the following benefits:
  • Sixteen meetings per year, with a varied programme of speakers covering all genres of writing.
  • Entry into club competitions. Competitions are judged by established writers who provide individual feedback on all entries.
  • Opportunity to meet fellow writers and share your work, your problems and your successes.
  • Regular updates about competitions, publishing opportunities and events
  • Newsletter and social events

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