Riverside Writers of Wirral. Creative Writing in West Kirby, Wirral, England.

Riverside Writers are an enthusiastic and informal group who live and work on the Wirral Peninsula in Cheshire, England. They meet each month in West Kirby Library where they hold workshops, set group writing projects and offer constructive guidance.

The group was formed in 1998, and its members include published authors plus absolute beginners, people who are developing writing careers and people who write purely for fun. Non-fiction writers, poets and fiction writers of all genres are equally welcome. The group also annually hosts public events, when members read their own original poetry and fiction to lively audiences.
