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 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 2020/21 Programme – pick out your favourite evenings.

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are presenting the September 2020 to September 2021 meetings as Zoom-Equivalent sessions. It’s the same weekly programme – Speakers, Workshops, Feedback Nights – just on Zoom instead of at the Mercure. Many of these sessions will be recorded and placed on the Members’ Area of the website for at-your-leisure viewing.

All May to Sept 2021 AWC Membership – £12.00

To join the club, all new memberships for the remaining May to September 2021 year, are only £12.00.
Over the summer months bring along your drafts (in any genre), a sample of your completed works (up to 1000 words) to read out at our fortnightly Feedback Evenings, held over Zoom.
Or just listen, enjoy the readings, offer thoughts if any come to you. It’s a chance to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow writers as we offer each other constructive, helpful feedback.

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.
