This group is for you!

The Richmond Writing Group meets on the third Tuesday of the month in the Constance Barnicoat room at Richmond Library between 1.00pm and 3.00pm.

From 1.00pm-2.00pm there is always a talk by an invited author. From 2.00pm-3.00pm you are invited to take part in a fun creative writing exercise, or join a discussion group.

It's free to attend, everyone is welcome, and bookings are not required. You are welcome to attend the whole session, or just part of it  - it's up to you.
