Who are we?
We are a group of writers of varied ability who meet at Llandudno Library, Mostyn Street, on the second Wednesday of each month from 2-4 pm - except for August when there is no meeting. There is also a Critique Group meeting at 2pm on the fourth Wednesday of each month in Colwyn Bay Cricket Club, Rhos on Sea.
The Club makes every effort to arrange programmes catering for a variety of tastes,
as our members’ writing interests range from poetry, journalism and short stories to drama, novels and books for children.
The idea is to encourage developing writing skills and fun exercises are devised to get attendees to write something during the meeting, and then read it out for comment.
We also arrange visits from published authors to take workshops, and these have proved very popular, with repeat visits.
Members are encouraged to bring ongoing work to the Critique meetings on the fourth Wednesday of each month for help and suggestions, and novice writers will find members willing to give their time to ensure they find their standards increase and enjoy the fun in the craft of writing.
Last, but not least, we have an annual party at Christmas time.
If you are interested in meeting a zany, happy and talented bunch of writers, just turn up;
Your search is over!
Llandudno, North Wales is the seaside home of book-lovers, poets and writers!
Lewis Carroll is said to have visited here with young Alice Liddell and her family when they stayed at Penmorfa, their holiday home on Llandudno's West Shore; and it is she who became the inspiration for his famous 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Alice Through the Looking Glass.'
Alas, Penmorfa (seen above in 2002) no longer graces West Shore, but the Alice in Wonderland link with Llandudno remains as strong as ever.
