Ayr Writers’ Club Archives

AYR WRITERS’ CLUB was founded in 1970, and we are very fortunate to have an extensive archived collection of published work, including items for almost every year of the club’s existence.

Ayr Writers’ Club’s Very First Syllabus, 1970-1971

The complete archive collection will soon be gifted to Ayrshire Archives where it will be available to be viewed by members past and present, as well as by the general public. Should any member be keen to access a piece from the archive collection, please complete this AWC Archive Withdrawal Permission Slip and send on to the Archivist. Our club will always be able to request a loan of archived items at any time.

In order to acknowledge the work of the current membership, and their publishing successes, members are encouraged to record details of these in our Success Book, but we are also keen to preserve new examples and add them to the archive, year on year.

This AWC Archive Submission Slip is available for members to record details of their publishing successes. This should be attached to copies of the published pieces and emailed, or handed over, to our Club Archivist for deposit within Ayrshire Archives.
