Members of West Sussex Writers are an eclectic bunch. We have scriptwriters, literary novelists, science fiction writers, poets, saga writers, dramatists, creative writing tutors, children's writers, journalists and biographers – among others - in our midst. Many, but not all, are published. Some have a lifetime of writing experience, others are at the start of their writing career, and a few haven't written anything yet.
Our aim is to help writers in all genres, to encourage their work and offer advice, if wanted, towards publication or gaining a wider readership. We achieve this through a mix of talks, workshops and competitions, offering something different at every meeting.
Our Next Meeting

Following her successful visit to the WSW Writers' Weekend, we have Vanessa Gebbie talking to us about Short Story Collections.

She is commissioning and contributing editor of Short Circuit, Guide to the Art of the Short Story editions i and ii (Salt), and she teaches widely. In 2017 she is leading short fiction courses in Venice, in Ireland, and at Gladstone's Library.
This looks to be a great meeting and we hope to see you there.
