Stornoway Writer’s Circle



What has about 20 legs, drinks tea, laughs and writes furiously? Well, on a good Tuesday night, that’s us.

We’re a friendly group of writers who meet weekly at An Lanntair in Stornoway. We’re open to anyone over the age of 16, writing in any genre or style, and at any level of ability.

Most meetings we:

  • discuss a published peice of work
  • do a 10 minute free-write or other writing exercise
  • workshop a piece written by a member of the group

Occasionally we have evenings run by guest speakers or tutors instead.

We take turns to lead the meeting, and to provide a piece of writing for the group to workshop.

There is a voluntary donation of £2 per meeting.

If you want to join us, come along to one of our meetings (no need to book in advance, just turn up) or contact us if you want to know more.
