Writers' Circle Networking Event

The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain is pleased to announce that the first ever WGGB Writers’ Circle will begin on Monday 8th October 2007 at 7pm with a networking session. The event will be held at The Writers’ Guild Centre, 17 Britannia Street, London WC1X 9JN (Nearest station: King’s Cross). Meetings for all groups will be held every other Monday from this date onward. Candidate Members' sessions will be held at 7pm and Full Members' sessions in the afternoon.

If you are interested in joining up for a future group then you are also welcome to attend this event. Please book by sending a cheque for £5 to : WGGB Writers' Circle event, ’ Writers' Guild of Great Britain, 15-17 Britannia Street, London, WC1X 9JN.

The Guild is still inviting applications for the first round of this initiative which is being set up to provide Guild members with a forum to discuss and develop their work. There will be two groups available for applicants to join: one for Full Members and one for Candidate/Student Members. Writers in these groups will also be separated according to genre: TV/ Film and Theatre/Radio. Please specify when you apply which genre you are interested in.

At each group meeting writers will be given feedback about their work from their fellow participants. After six months two writers from each circle will be selected by a panel of judges to present their work at a showcase. Following this event, each group will be disbanded and new applicants will be invited to form a new Circle.

Applicants will be asked to pay £60 for 6 months in advance. (This works out as £5 per session and will cover the administrative costs of the meetings.)
