Potential Members

As of January 2020, the Plymouth Writers’ Group has regrettably closed its membership and waiting lists until further notice. We have enjoyed the benefits of success and our membership has been steadily climbing. It has now reached the stage where, regrettably, we cannot accept more writers, other than as Guests/Observers (See note in the Welcome page). We believe that it’s unfair to add names to a waiting list when there is little prospect of applicants being invited to join. This situation will be reviewed regularly and, should vacancies occur in the future, we’ll be pleased to invite applications via this website in particular from those who have already attended as a Guest/Observer.

Alan Grant, Chairman.


  1. Hi Lou,

    I am a writer who has recently moved back to the area after several years living in London. I’m still very much developing my writing having undertaken creative writing courses at City Lit in Covent Garden. I’m looking for a local group that I can attend on a regular basis in order to keep me motivated and help me to develop my writing.

    I look forward to hearing from you.


  2. Hello, my name is Luca and I’m a budding poet/ spoken word performer who is trying to actively meet other like minded people so I can grow and gain a wider wealth of experience to further my learning and work. Unfortunately , where I’m based has no such collective. Is it possible to come along and listen / bare witness / have the chance to attend and interact with people at your first Saturday if he month meeting without membership?


  3. Hi Lou
    I live in Plymouth and I am a writer.
    I have had #1 books on Amazon in the UK, USA, Canada, Germany and France – varying from music festival and band books to eerie/horror novels.
    I was featured as one of the top selling Plymouth authors on Amazon this year by the Herald.
    I’d be interested in joining your group as I just came across you on the Internet.
    Hope to hear from you soon
    Ian Carroll



  4. Dear Ms Fletcher

    I was my mother’s full time carer for 8 years. She had dementia and passed away last summer. During this period I created a collection of 49 soul baring songs, that stand in their own right as poems and tell a contiguous story. I moved from West Cornwall a few months ago and started a new life in Saltash. I’m confident that one-day my work will be performed. I’m sure that attending a meeting of the Plymouth Writers Group, and sharing my thoughts, would be a step in the right direction. Could you please tell me if that’s possible?

    Yours Sincerely

    Michael Phillips
