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.


August 9th – An Evening of Mini-talks by CW Members (tbc)

Due to a late change to our events programme, we’re hoping to arrange another one of these evenings. Several members of the group will give short talks about their own writing experience and particular field of expertise. When we’ve run these events before they’ve always proved to be both interesting and fun.


September 13th – Alison Bruce in conversation with Dave Sivers

She went on to complete the DC Goodhew series with a further six novels before writing the psychological thriller I Did It for Us. She will be interviewed by CW member and fellow crime writer Dave Sivers, author of the Archer and Baines series. Alison’s website is at
