University College London Union

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 drop-in weekly feedback sessions, a prose-writing discussion group, regular open mic nights (often with exciting headline acts!), poetry workshops with our poet-in-residence Declan Ryan, a radio drama project, and the opportunity to air your work on the Writers’ Society radio show on Rare FM. We also make and distribute termly zines, in which you can publish your work.

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.

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, and all the best for the monsoon season.
