Purpose

The London Writers Society provides information, community, and exposure for new and experienced writers, in and around London, Canada.

Monthly meetings

Free and open to the public, our general membership meetings are a great place to meet other writers. These monthly meetings feature a variety of events ranging from guest speakers to mini-workshops to writing exercises.

Location: Beginning fresh in 2016, we have moved up to a bigger and better venue: the Stevenson & Hunt Room  at the Central Library (251 Dundas Street, London, ON). Map.

Dates and Time: Also beginning in 2016, we have evolved our meet times. Our general membership meets are now the third Tuesday of each month (except August) from 6:30 to 8:45 pm.

Critique groups

For many members, critique groups are a key attraction of the London Writers Society. They bring writers together with peers for face-to-face comments and suggestions on their works in progress.

Events

We produce a variety of events to inform, entertain, and give writers a platform for their work. Our activities have included:

  • Produced FringeWords as part of the London Fringe Festival.
  • Offered mini-workshops on query writing, flash fiction, and other topics.
  • Organized research/field trips to police stations, horse farms and shooting ranges.
  • Hosted holiday parties and pub nights.

Membership

Membership in the London Writers Society is the best writing bargain to be had — only $25 a year to join our creative community. We invite you to come to our general meetings to get acquainted, and if you like it (as we think you will!) then you can become a member.
