Sutton Writers is a supportive writing community. Whether you are a budding Shakespeare or Stephen King or want to follow in the footsteps of Agatha Christie or Julia Donaldson – whatever your aspirations, you will be warmly welcomed.
Our strong membership comprises both published and unpublished writers of diverse talents offering support and friendship with local monthly meetings, workshops and the chance to enter club competitions.
We host several poetry and prose SLAM events per year where members read out their work and a prize to the best pieces of work. We have an annual President’s Prize competition for the best short story. There is a cash prize and the first prize winner will have their name added to the winners’ shield.
We meet on the second Friday of each month and host talks from a range of external speakers, including published writers, agents, publishers and editors.
If you would like to come to a monthly meeting it is free for first-timers – giving you the chance to experience being part of our community before you commit to joining.
We also organise several writing groups and workshops that meet regularly and share work and critiques.
Sutton Writers is one of the largest and most successful writing groups in the UK.
