Worcester Writers' Circle

The Circle

Worcester Writers’ Circle (WWC) is an enthusiastic group who enjoy writing for pleasure and publication. Some of us are beginners, and waiting for our big break. Others are experienced professionals who have had their work published.
The Circle was established in 1941 and is one of the longest continuously active groups in the country.
Novelist Caroline Graham is our Patron and lifetime member.

If you write, we may be able to help you.
We encourage all aspects of writing from short stories, novels, articles, poetry, plays and even pantomime. We provide you with a forum to test out your ideas.
At meetings we:

  • Share our work
  • Offer help and constructive criticism
  • Suggest possible markets
  • Hold discussions on different aspects of writing
  • Host speakers.
Why not come along and see if we are what you are looking for? Guests are always welcome.

The annual subscription is £18.

WWC Events 

Following the success of the first WLF Walk, renamed 'Poets in the Mist', which we were delighted to support, we announce the next one around the water in Worcester: Words On Water ~ details to follow on the Worcester Literary Festival website

Some Background

The Circle had its first meeting on June 26th 1941, and has met continuously ever since. During that time it has had a variety of members but they all shared a common enthusiasm for writing.
Among recent members, Lynne Hackles is a very prolific and successful writer of women's fiction, being published in many of the weeklies such as people's Friend, Take a Break and Fiction Fest. She is also a regular contributor to Writers' News.
WWC includes both professional writers and beginners, and everyone is encouraged to bring work to read at the bi-monthly meetings which currently are held in Dancox House, St Clement's Gardens, Worcester on the first and third Tuesday of each month. Starting at 7.30, they last for two hours. Encouragement and gentle criticism are offered together with suggestions on markets that could be approached.

Worcester Writers' Circle is a member of the National Association of Writers' Groups.
