1 About the Group

The Devizes Writers’ Group is for people who enjoy writing.  Some members have been published, some write just for their own amusement and pleasure. We count poets, storytellers, playwrights and biographers amongst our members.

The group has no chairman, and precious few rules. New members are very welcome if we have capacity, but 2022 has seen a very encouraging rise in numbers.  We have invited some people who were on our waiting list to come and see what we are all about and if they like us they may join, but if they all do we will be back to running a waiting list for potential  members.   This is simply because our meetings become unwieldy when there are too many people wanting to read out their work.

We meet in The Bear for DWG1 in the evening, and at member’s homes in the afternoon for DWG2, and back at the Bear an evening session for a new group called, imaginatively, DWG3.  See the Meetings section for further information

The posts listed on the left give some idea of what we have been doing lately.

For more information, or if you would like to go on the waiting list, please email devizeswriters@gmail.com.

    It would be good if you have space available to join your writing group. I write short stories but only when inspired . But I find them therapeutic and I also draw relevant pictures to the stories to make them more accessible . I notice that Bob Dylan has recently started illustrated his song writing with drawings. My drawings are very similar to his with perhaps even less detail so peoples imagination can fill in the gaps. I live near Netheravon so could access Devizes regularly.

  2. I have sent you an email, and hope to meet you soon

  3. Seems like a lovely (and successful) group you have!

    Does the group welcome younger and less experienced writers? I’m 18 and love writing, but I’m dyslexic so I sometimes struggle to put my ideas together 🙂

    • We would love to see you! You may think we are older than dinosaurs, but we have all been 18 once. We don’t even see your work written down so would not have a clue about spelling being wonky. We are very happy to give help, and feedback, and ideas are much more important than perfection (and who does that, anyway?). If you would like to join us on the 25th drop us a line on devizeswriters@gmail.com.

    During lockdown I wrote an eight part sitcom to keep my mind occupied. I am now in the process of adapting the screenplay. I would love to have feedback on my work and advice on my writing and how best to format the screenplay. I am also a prolific reader and would welcome the chance to read your members work. I live in Chippenham so just a stones throw.
