WGGB Writers’ Circle

The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain is pleased to announce that the first ever WGGB Writers’ Circle will begin in September 2007 and applications are now being invited.

The initiative 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 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 sessions.)

If you are interested in joining please send a cheque payable to the Writers' Guild, to ‘WGGB Writers' Circle ’, Writers' Guild of Great Britain, 15-17 Britannia Street, London, WC1X 9JN. Please remember to include your contact details so we can get in touch with you!

Spaces are limited to 15 people per group so please apply early. Group meetings will be held every two weeks at the Writers’ Guild Centre in Kings Cross. We are keen to have WGGB Writers' Circles set up all over the U.K , so if you are interested in establishing one outside London then please get in touch with Moe Owoborode:
