Sadly we don’t have any more events planned just now – but keep an eye on our blog and Facebook page! You might just see up popping up around the Annandale and Eskdale area soon.

Lockerbie Writers Meetings

Lockerbie Writers meet fortnightly at the Townhead Hotel, Lockerbie. Meetings normally take place on alternate Tuesdays, 10am – 12noon. This group is for writers of all abilities and interests, including poetry, flash fiction and novels. We set a writing prompt and do a short piece of writing ahead of each meeting which we then bring along to share with the group (don’t worry, you don’t need to do this on your first visit!) Everyone is welcome to come along for a cuppa, join in with a writing exercise, or even share some of your work!

A Novel Approach meets fortnightly at the King’s Arms Hotel, Lockerbie. Meetings normally take place on Tuesdays, 7.30pm, on alternate weeks to the morning group. This group is specifically for anyone who is working on a novel – whether you are on Chapter One or at the editing stage.
