The members of Huntingdon Writers' Group come a multitude of different backgrounds and interests and have equally diverse writing experience.
Some have had short stories, poems, letters or articles published in magazines, whilst others have novels, short-stories, poems or non-fiction books available on Amazon.
Importantly, we also welcome people who still aspire to publication, as well as those who are happy to write just for themselves and family or friends.
Our activities include varied competitions with guest judges, speakers, manuscript evenings, workshops which explore different areas of creative writing, as well as fun evenings. We aim to offer something for everyone who enjoys writing.
If you would like to know more about our activities, or are interested in joining the group, please contact us.
