Writers' Society

Welcome to the UCLU Writers’ Society. We’re UCLU’s home for creative writers of all descriptions. We’re here if you want feedback, inspiration, or just to spend time with other people who enjoy writing.

We offer fortnightly separate feedback sessions for Prose, Poetry and Scripts, regular open mic nights (often with exciting headline acts!), workshops, sessions with guest authors and the opportunity to air your work on the Writers’ Society radio show on Rare FM and publish in both our termly magazine and yearly anthology. 

All genres of writing are welcome, including sci-fi, fantasy, detective fiction, crime, thrillers etc. We are by no means focussed on literary fiction (although all that’s welcome too!), and we aim to have a completely fresh, creative and practical way of discussing writing, absolutely different from the academic ‘English Literature’ approach.

Please note that for each feedback session, people submit their work online a week or two before the meet date so that everyone gets a chance to read it. Please join our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/group…) to keep up to date, and the division groups for Prose (https://www.facebook.com/group…), Poetry () and Scriptwriting (https://www.facebook.com/group…).

If you have any questions, all the details should be on our website: www.ucluwriters.co.uk .

Otherwise, please don’t hesitate to contact us at: writers@ucl.ac.uk.

We hope to see you at some of our events soon. Until then, happy writing.
