Writers distribute the work they’d like to discuss a week before the meeting, and this is read before we get together. This means there is time to form constructive feedback on each project.
This style of group doesn’t suit everyone, as it does require a little reading ‘homework’ before each meeting! We have a mix of group members most are working on novels or short stories, but we occasionally have children’s fiction, screenplays and non-fiction to read. We welcome new members who are willing to give time to helping others improve their work, as well as trying to improve their own. If you have any questions about Writers Of Whitstable or want to come along please email Joanne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
OUR NEW BOOK: A Different Kind of Kent
A Different Kind of Kent is the second collection of short stories published by the Writers of Whitstable (WoW). The group have widened their scope from the town of Whitstable to the county of Kent, and in these stories you’ll find glimpses of all different aspects of this wonderful county.
Kent is the Garden of England – but there’s more to it than meets the eye… Squeezegut Alley in Whitstable, Deal ceremony, the woods at Blean, the coast off Margate all these locations and more have a story to tell.
The Writers of Whitstable are launching their new book on December 1st at 7pm at the Umbrella Cafe. All are welcome. Come along and enjoy readings from the book and meet some local writers. Learn more here.
OUR FIRST BOOK: Beyond the Beach Huts
We’ve been busy producing a book of short stories which is now available from Harbour Books, Whitstable Improvement Store or online at Amazon.co.uk. The stories each have a Whitstable theme and more than a dozen writers have contributed stories to the book. The book is priced at just £5, with profits donated to local charity Trust Sulha.
We hope you enjoy our tales of Whitstable life, which include flying car parks, grotters and sunsets, art show dramas and true stories from Whitstable’s past. There is a lot more to life in this town than pretty beach huts, and we enjoyed creating an alternative view of the town!
The book is available from Amazon or from Harbour Books or the Whitstable Improvement Trust in town.
