We write, we talk, we discuss, we help, we critique, we publish, we have fun with writing!

Writers' Soc, a safe enviroment for Writers to come and meet new people, show their work and build their skills. Whether you are a poet, playwright, novelist, songwriter or just a listener, you are always welcome to our come along to our weekly meetings and get involved!

Feel free to share your work, listen to the works of fellow writers, play some fun writing games, and of course help yourself to tea and biscuits.

We also do several other events including writing workshops, writing competitions and we also publish the work of our members in a publication that is then distributed around campus (all going well this year with Covid regulations that is).

We were also the winners of the 2012/2013 Phoenix Award at the Society Awards and we also won the award for 2014/2015. We competed in Unislam 2019. Those interested in radio play writing will find themselves at home among us.
