Writers in the Brewery is a ‘pop-in’ social session for everyone who is interested in writing. Poets, fiction writers, biographers and non-fiction writers – all are welcome.

Guest speaker/performer each month: an author, publisher, poet, journalist, musician or groups, who share their work and entertain us. Open ‘mic’ each evening for anyone to read and share their work.

It is an opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn about groups, competitions, classes and workshops and a chance to showcase your own work if you want to. So come along to share your work or just sit back, sip your drink and listen to others.
