16 AND ALL THAT FREE Event featuring Plymouth Writers’ Group as part of the Plymouth Literature Festival on 29th Oct – find out more

Hot off the press, our new anthology is published on Amazon and Kindle, find out more

Welcome to the website of the Plymouth Writers Group.

This site contains information about our group and provides you with useful links. 

PWG meets on the first Saturday of the month with a core of formal members who agree to attend eight out of twelve monthly meetings a year.  We also have informal members who cannot attend regularly and come when they can.  All attendees pay a small fee on the day.

PWG has recently relocated to The Creative Writing Department, University of Plymouth. This has placed us in the mainstream of creative writing; members write short stories, books, poetry, and also scripts for radio and stage.  Each month we agree a writing assignment and authors read their stories to the group at the following meeting.  However, some prefer to bring their own story or a short excerpt of their work in progress.  We are not tutor led but do actively support each other with critiques and constructive criticism, through listening and learning.

We are working towards both our next Anthology,  and our next International Short Story Competition.  Details may be found on this website.

PWG a friendly group and if you are interested in attending a meeting as a guest please go to the Potential Members section on this website.  

Finally, PWG is not involved with politics or pressure groups, nor is it associated with them.

  1. Excellent website. Clearly talented creator, cover very atmospheric. Reminds me of that brilliant book “Short Stories for Longer Journeys”.


  2. Matt, Thanks so much for this very professional portal to our group. I just love that creepy picture – where did you get it? Lou Fletcher.


    1. Lou — in answer to your query as to the origin of the ‘creepy picture’? It reminded me very much of the ones you drew in connection with your excellent story concerning ‘A Stolen Ruby’ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
