Monthly Groups

There are currently three monthly groups running – the novelists’ group, the short story group, and the women’s magazines group.

If you’d  like to find out more, please contact the LWC secretary, who’ll put you in touch with organisers Edward Easton and deputy David Cundall (novelists), Graeme Hall (short story) or Joanna Bucktrout (womag) if you are interested.


We gather on the second Saturday of every month at the Blackwells Bookshop. Members submit up to 4000 words by e-mail two weeks before the meeting. Everyone’s work is thoroughly reviewed in advance and our discussions on the day are constructive. If this sounds like hard work, it is, but it’s also very rewarding and enjoyable.

Short Story

We meet one Saturday every month from September to July. The Group exists to give members an opportunity to improve their short story writing by sharing their work and giving feedback and constructive criticism.


This is a group for those interested in submitting stories to women’s magazines. We meet on the first Saturday of every second month (Sept, Nov, Jan etc) at the Carriageworks. Submissions are 2000 words, sent a couple of weeks before the meeting, and feedback is constructive!
