Wednesday Writers: A Brand New Zoom Based Writing Group

January Wednesday Writers has now sold out, but look out for something new for Friday mornings coming soon!

As well as my prompt a day courses, half day workshops and courses for the Centre of Life Long Learning York, I’m going to be starting a new group in January. My centre for Lifelong Learning course, Becoming a Published Poet is drawing to an end, and it feels like there is still more to do, learn, explore and share. So I have decided to start the Wednesday Writers group. This is a zoom based workshop style writing group which will run every other Wednesday from 6th January. Booking in advance is essential as numbers are very limited and there is already a lot of interest in the group.

The Wednesday Writers will have a focus on becoming published as well as producing new writing. Wednesday Writers is a no pressure group for writers of all experience levels, from those beginners wanting to see what they are capable of, to those experienced poets wanting to be prompted to write and submit. Each session we’ll look at a magazine, journal or competition in depth: we’ll look at the mission of that magazine, who and what sort of work they publish, who the editors and judges are and what we might put in a cover letter to those publishers. We’ll also have a prompted exercise with the ai of getting notes or a draft to polish up and send to that publication.

Wednesday Writers will be a fun place to share news, gather with like minded people and push yourself to write and submit your work, so why not make a New Year’s resolution now to priority your writing and aim to be published in 2021.

The two January dates are now open for bookings, but places are extremely limited due to this being a zoom group. You can book your place by following this link to my online shop. I can’t wait to bring in the new year with you and share your writing resolutions!
