Welcome to the Website of the Chiltern Writers Group

We are a friendly group based in Wendover in Buckinghamshire.

Normally, our meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month, starting at 8.00. However, owing to the Coronavirus Pandemic live meetings have been suspended until further notice.  We are endeavouring to offer members some virtual activities in the interim. 

Non members are welcome to attend future events via Zoom if they are able to pay a Guest Fee of £5 on line.  If you are interested please get in touch through the Contact Us page on this website.

NEXT MEETING:

 September 10thManuscript Evening via Zoom and announcement of the results of our annual writing competition.  This year’s challenge was to write a 1,000 word non-fiction articles on any subject. The article had to be accompanied by a 100 word pitch to the chosen publication’s editor, summarising what the article was about and why they should publish it.  The competition has been judged by Chiltern Writers’ member and former Chair, Sandra Smith, a freelance writer whose articles have appeared in local and national magazines from Buckinghamshire Living to Town and Country.  Three prizes will be awarded: 1st Prize (£30), 2nd Prize (£20) and 3rd Prize (£10).  The 3 winners will be invited to read out their entries at our Christmas social (Covid-permitting) on 10 December.

 

NEWS FOR MEMBERS:

Results of our annual writing competition will be announced at our September meeting and afterwards published on the website.
