Devon Writers Group
The Devon Writers’ Group now has over one hundred and thirty members, from all corners of the county. The group meets roughly quarterly (Sept/Dec/April/July) in rural pubs for an informal weekday lunch: the venue moves east, west, north and south to make it easy for every author to have at least one meeting per year within travelling distance. The December meeting is usually in the vicinity of Exeter. Talks may be arranged for additional dates.
The aim is to bring together active writers to contribute ideas, news, advice, friendship and all-round good cheer. Meetings are generally arranged by email. The organiser, Yves Potter, encourages members to raise any particular ideas or issues for discussion with her prior to each meeting. If you are interested in attending, please contact Jessica Atkinson to be added to the group's mailing list.
