Edinburgh Creative Writer’s Club
The Club meets on Tuesdays, 7-10pm at Marcos, 79 Grove Street. Marcos is a huge pool hall, but the writing group meets in an upstairs annex. It’s a serious group with a contingent of regulars, mostly fiction writers, who read and then critique each other. Poetry is also performed and welcomed.
An offshoot of the Edinburgh Creative Writer’s Club. Discuss writing over a hot drink and a bun on Sundays, 3pm, at the Patisserie Florentin, 5 North West Circus Place.
Shut Up and Write
Wednesdays, 1 hour, any genre, needn’t share, just work away at your own writing in company. Starts at 7pm. Takes place at Starbucks, 47 Leith Street.
Edinburgh Poetry Book Club
Whilst this reading group is aimed at poetry appreciation rather than a test ground for your own, it is a good place to hear what people enjoy and a chance to practice your reading skills. 8pm on the first Tuesday of the month in the bar of the Cameo Cinema, 38 Home St.
Please note that groups sometimes become inactive without letting us know. Please contact the group before making any plans to join them.
