London Writers Society
If you’re a writer in or around London, Canada, this is the place for you.
Read this page for a quick introduction to the society. You can also connect via newsletter. Welcome!
The London Writers Society provides information, community, and exposure for new and experienced writers–and all people interested in writing–in and around London, Canada.
Free and open to the public, our general membership meetings are a great place to meet other writers and the writing-interested. These monthly meetings feature a variety of events ranging from guest speakers to mini-workshops to writing exercises.
Location: Our General Membership Meetings venue is the Wellington Room on the second floor of the Central Library (251 Dundas Street, London, ON). Map.
Dates and Time: Our General Membership Meetings are the third Tuesday of each month (except August and December) from 6:30 to 8:45 pm.
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.
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 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.
