Writing Group

We usually meet on the third Friday of the month upstairs in the Dugdale Centre from 10am to 11.45 – or until we stop talking – 12 noon max! At the moment we are holding meetings via Zoom.
Each month we read a short piece of our own writing followed by a discussion. This is a really sociable, friendly and interesting group. Topics are suggested each month by group members. We would be delighted to welcome you. Sometimes some of us have not had time to write and simply tell fellow members about something of interest, or just listen and then join in with the discussion. So do consider joining us – we would love to meet you when we resume meetings. For a few examples of our work, visit and for more information, please call Christine Whetstone on 020 8805 1180.
