Next meeting:

The next meeting of Riverside Writers will take place at 7:30 pm on Monday 26th June 2017

The subject for our next meeting:-

  Please SHARE YOUR BEST WORK TO DATE: THE ONE YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF.  In the face of all that is negative, depressing, and evil in these days, here is an opportunity for us to bring out the very best in our writings and encourage each other.  And maybe have some self-therapy?  If you haven't got one, write one!



Due to increased charges for room hire, it has become necessary to increase the charge from £2.00 to £2.50, starting April 2017.

We will not be meeting in December.

Reminder: Please bring £2.50 with you to each meeting towards the cost of room hire. Thank you.



There are no workshops planned at the moment - Watch this space!
