On todays show Danny spoke with Mark Clementson of Verulam Writers Circle. This organisation has been in existence for over 50 years and has around 40 members.
It doesn't matter how competent you are at writing - everyone is welcome - and the group has members with all levels of writing ability. Some members are just beginning to take the first step in writing whilst others have had work published, although to join you don't need any experience. The group meetings involve reading other peoples work and giving feedback, and sometimes feature guest speakers and workshops.
The group meets every other Wednesday at St Michaels Church Hall (near Verulamium museum) at 8pm. And on the other Wednesdays they meet at the Six Bells pub in St Michaels. The next meeting is Wednesday 4th November at St Michaels Church Hall.
Of particular interest is a conference the group is holding next year. It's going to be at the University of Hertfoordshire on the 20th Feb 2010. At the conference they'll have authors, speakers and workshops.
