Wellington Friends launched Solitary Writers to reach out to the community and draw people together. We started in March 2018, and once a month, on the second Saturday, we meet between 5 and 7pm to share our latest output.
It is a fully inclusive group, which welcomes and thrives on the diversity of the people who come, bringing with them a rich assortment of experience and writing.
The variety of work is astonishing, with poetry of all sorts, short fiction, blogs and even some dedicated souls working steadfastly through full length novels. The group is warm and supportive, with endlessly kind feedback on work. Writers say how much they look forward to meeting up each month!
In the spirit of ‘passing it forward’ instead of a subscription, we ask for a small voluntary donation of food which is collected by the local food bank.
