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 UPDATE: We’re so pleased to announce that we have, once more, resumed our weekly meetings in the large, comfortable, upstairs private room of the Mercure Ayr Hotel – every Wednesday, 7.30-9.30pm. 
But, although we’re meeting in-person again, things haven’t completely returned to how they were before. We’re in that careful transition stage, led by Government guidance, rules, on how best to keep ourselves, and others, safe. Please see this AWC Club News Page – HERE – for further details.

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.
