Events Programme

Regular meetings take place on the second Thursday of the month, starting at 8.00pm. We usually finish at around 9.30, but sometimes it’s a little later.

 

July 13th– Teri Terry: Plotting Without A Plan

A return visit from the successful young adult author and former member of Chiltern Writers.Teri will be talking on the subject of plotting without a plan. Her website can be found here: https://teriterry.jimdo.com/

 

August 10th – Manuscript Evening

These are events we hold regularly where members can read out something they’ve written to the rest of the group and, if they wish, receive constructive criticism. Their writing can be anything from a short poem to an extract from a novel or a memoir, but it’s always interesting to hear both the variety and the high quality of the work being produced.

 

September 14th – Jon Teckman

Jon will be talking about writing a comedy novel. You can read more about him and his novel “Ordinary Joe” by clicking here or here.

December 14th – Christmas Social

Our annual Christmas bash, which usually features a fiendish literary quiz (sometimes in picture form) but will definitely include the announcement of the winners of this year’s CW Short Story Competition.
