The South East London Writers Group at the Brockley Jack

Lindsey has been in touch regarding a new writers group that meets regularly at the Brockley Jack:

We are a small circle of writers who first met in January 2011 to critique one another's work and offer helpful advice and feedback. Currently we have six core members and are looking to expand the group. All are welcome!

We meet once a fortnight on Mondays at the Brockley Jack in Brockley. We aim to arrive at 19:30 and usually get started with the critiques around 20:00. Work for critique is emailed around one week in advance and everyone is expected to have read the work before the meeting and bring notes so that we don't need to spend time reading it out when we could be discussing it.

Typically we provide 2000-4000 words and aim to critique two writer's work each session. Our members write a wide variety of fiction, from historical novels to fantasy and crime so whatever you write, we'll be happy to give constructive advice.

All feedback, positive or negative, is welcome at our meetings, but we always behave in a friendly and positive manner. Don't be shy about presenting your work, the purpose of the group is to help one another improve. Whether you are aiming to get published or just enjoy writing for its own sake, your work will be given an open, honest appraisal.

If you'd like to come along then drop us a line here, email us at or just turn up on the night. Our next session is on Monday 28th of March, so either get in touch to find out more, or we'll see you there!
