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?

What’s good about the club? – ENCOURAGEMENT – to be adventurous and try something new. VARIETY – no two weeks are ever the same. INSPIRATION – from hearing invited speakers, or from other members’ successes.
