1. To foster the art of writing in all its forms
2. To provide constructive guidance and assistance to members, particularly but not exclusively with a view to publication
3. To offer a welcoming and supportive environment for all persons - whether writers, readers or critics, whether experienced or beginners - who are sympathetic to the group's aims
Most meetings are ‘Open Manuscripts’ in which members read from and receive feedback on their writing. There are four annual competitions - Short Story, Poetry, Article, Humorous Writing - open only to members.
Prospective new members are invited to attend two meetings free of charge. Meetings are mostly open manuscript where members read their work out and receive constructive criticism. Reading is not compulsory and neither is critiquing. All genres and styles are welcome.
