Written Inc. is an established writing group based in Liverpool that meets fortnightly. We get together every other Wednesday at a community centre in Toxteth, Liverpool 8. If you're interested in coming along, please contact us using the contacts form and we will provide the address.
It's not a big secret - the venue just values its privacy.
Alternatively, we offer a lift to anyone who might be struggling to get there from the centre of town - pickup will be outside our old venue at 64 Mount Pleasant, L3 9SD. Again, get in touch and we can sort that out.
The group is open to both new and experienced writers of all levels of ability, and seeks to help all our members hone their abilities via supportive and constructive feedback.
Our aim is to encourage new writing from across the North West and provide in our meetings the opportunity to workshop and gather opinion on your work in a relaxed and informal environment.
We believe in a collaborative and mutually respectful approach, with an emphasis upon preparing work for publication and performance at open mic and other events.
Please see scrolling feed to the right for the dates of upcoming meetings.
Please note, this map shows the pickup point for anyone wanting a lift to the centre, not the centre we meet at which we can provide address details for upon request.
The nearest station to this pick up point is Liverpool Central
The format of our meetings is fairly casual with some readings of work and some discussion/feedback. The centre we meet at is a drug and alcohol free environment which we obviously respect, and so we often follow our meetings with a trip to the pub afterwards. Members can premiere new writing, ask for opinion if they want it, bounce ideas around, or just discuss something great they've just read.
We have short story writers, novelists, poets, playwrights and screenwriters in the group, so you'll be welcomed whatever your chosen literary form.
If you're not interested in attending the group then feel free to visit the site regularly anyway as we will be posting up any news we come across on upcoming literary events in and around Liverpool and both local and national competitions.
We also have some links to useful writing resources - see our Inc. Spot page for lists of useful writing websites, but also our Twitter feed on the right and the links we have to some of the free resources on offer from the Open University which are on our (Un)Official Inc. page.
