AWOL Writers’ Group

The AWOL writers’ group is currently running every Sunday at either The Red Wheelbarrow or Berkeley Books – check time and place here.

Last year relaunched as AWOL Writers’ Group this has been running continuously as a drop-in feedback workshop since 2005.

It’s a very down-to-earth, unpretentious and welcoming place to get some serious feedback on your work or listen and join in the discussion of other people’s poems, stories, etc.

These folk are not messing about, they really care that we all support each other to learn the craft, keep writing, and grow as writers.

If you want feedback then bring 10 copies of your poem or of up to 4 pages of prose.

  • Watch Jame DiBiasio’s interview with hosts of the writers’ group here.
  • Read an article on the writers’ group in Expatriates Magazine.

The workshop is now run by Bruce Sherfield and Simon Millward with Thibaut Narme and Tara Hatch. Formerly known as The Other Writers’ Group and run by David Barnes and then David and Bruce together.

Sundays early evening 
Currently takes place at either Berkeley Books or The Red Wheelbarrow – for time and place see here.
Free.

    Its 6:30 in Paris and I’m thinking about the wonderful people I was privileged to meet while I was there the past two weeks. Everyone was warm and welcoming in person, creative and thoughtful in their craft. I will forever remember those two great Sunday evenings I spent in your company, and I thank you for providing the inspiration I was looking for on that trip. All the best to all of you!! – Steve Powers
