Writing Group

Members of Wimborne Writing Group have published novels, poetry, plays (which have also been performed), short fiction and various forms of non-fiction. Two members have gone on to achieve MAs, and two members completed PhDs – all in Creative Writing. I started teaching creative writing in 2001 and then established Wimborne Writing Group from these classes in 2006. Wimborne Writing Group is a collective of dedicated and talented writers most of whom have succeeded in being published during their time in the group.

Currently we meet monthly on Wednesdays at Clarcs which is the Community Learning & Resource Centre in King Street, Wimborne. If you are interested in joining please contact Sarah Steele at Clarcs or post a message on this site.

    Hi Sarah,

    Just wondered if group was still running? I’ve been interested in writing for quite some time now. New year new start.

        Hi Sarah,

        I may be moving to Wimborne in months to come and would be very interested to hear more about and join this group….is it still going? Thanks, Kathryn

      • Hi Kathryn
        Thanks for your message and, yes, Wimborne Writing Group is alive and flourishing! During the pandemic lockdown we have been meeting on zoom but I hope face-to-face classes will resume before too long. I will email you directly with some details.

    Hello Sarah
    I believe I met you at the Blandford literary festival poetry evening. Is your group open to new members, if so when do you meet? Do you also run a poetry group?
    Kind Regards

  3. Hi Finola
    Wimborne Writing Group is open to new members, when we have a space. I also lead a Poetry Society Stanza group in Wimborne. I’d be happy to meet and talk about these groups and I will contact you soon.
    I believe I did meet you at Blandford Lit Fest when I came to the poetry reading.
    I will be doing a writer-in-residence slot at Black Pug Books on Friday 31st Jan 10-1pm – would you be able to call in?
