Need help with writing? Join us at Southbank, Bedminster

We’ve spent most of the last year toiling away at our writing desks, but with September and that new term feeling upon us we’ve decided it’s time to get out and about again. Our aim is to meet more writers, help more writers, and, yes, find new audiences for our work.

First of all we’re delighted to announce a new partnership with the management of Southbank Club in Bedminster who are keen to have creative arts activities alongside language and exercise classes.

And so first off (drumroll!)  we’re delighted to announce the  Monday Writing Club which will meet fortnightly from Sept 21st (1st and 3rd Monday of each month) from 12 – 1.30  at Southbank (Dean Lane, BS3 1DB) with each session led by a member of the Unchained Writers Collective .

So who is it for?

  • Maybe you have an idea I’d like to write about but haven’t quite got round to it
  • Or you might have made a start on something but need moral support, feedback or just the company of other tortured souls
  • Or maybe you’ve got a finished piece of work (WOOP!) but would like some advice on the mad mad world of publishing (believe us, it is!)

If any of these apply do come along and join us. The cost is a only £4 per session with a hot drink provided (BYO lunch)

You can pay on the day, or if you’d like to reserve a place (or have any questions) please use our contact form. 

And did we mention story readings? Watch this space!

Where Can Books Take Us? Free workshop coming up

It has been a busy few months since our launch in October with Bristol Women Writers members taking parts in lots of events around the Bristol area as well as knuckling down to get on with our own writing projects. (Yes, we write stuff too!)

But now we’re ready to ‘go public’ again with a reading/writing workshop which is part of  Bristol Libraries’ 400 celebrations.

In Where Books Can Take Us, you can again hear members read from the Unchained anthology, but this time there will also be the chance to hear about their sources of their inspiration and take part in activities to get you writing.

The event is on Thursday 27 Feb 2014
in the Central Library,
from 5:45 PM – 7:15 PM

 AND IT’S FREE!

The event is listed here, but  please ring 0117 9037250 or email bookhive@bristol.gov.uk to book your place.

Our thanks as always to the library staff for making this possible. We’re all looking forward to catching up with Unchained fans old and new.

See you there!
