Writing for Pleasure – and Profit!

Would you like to see your work in print, broadcast on radio or television, performed in the theatre, or made into a film?

I joined the club to learn how to tell my story in writing, but I found more than that. I found support, friendship, inspiration, motivation and even a trophy and a book deal!

Welcome to the Club

Founded over 50 years ago, Ayr Writers’ Club is one of the biggest and most successful writing groups in Scotland.
Whether you have never written before, or are a published author, new members and visitors (£3) are always welcome. Why not try a couple of nights – browse the 2021/22 Programme – pick out your favourite evenings.

COVID-19 UPDATEThis year we will continue to present the first two months of our Programme on Zoom – September 2021 and October 2021. It’s the same weekly programme of Speakers, Workshops, Feedback Nights – just online, instead of at the Mercure. 
But from Wednesday  3rd November 2021 until Wednesday 4th May 2022, we will be meeting from 7.30pm-9.30pm in the large, comfortable, upstairs private room of the Mercure Ayr Hotel, Ayr. And from June until August 2022, we meet fortnightly at various local venues to share our most recent works through our Feedback Nights.

September 2021 – August 2022

We have three levels of yearly Ayr Writers Club Membership – Full (£48), E-Member (£24), and Student Member (£30).

JOIN ONLINE HERE anytime throughout the year.

YEARLY MEMBERSHIP of Ayr Writers’ Club gives access to meetings, invited speakers, feedback events, book-token-prizes and trophy-winning competitions, the annual Scottish Association of Writers’ Weekend Conference in March, and so much more. Please see Payment Options page for full details.
