Welcome to Watford Writers
Gathering every Monday to share stories, poetry and writing tips, Watford Writers has been in existence for almost ten years
A group of local individuals who love to write, we have a variety of writing styles, passions and interests - some of us are published ... most of us are not! We welcome anyone who shares an interest in writing, likes to hear stories, would like to offer and receive constructive critique AND who likes to have a laugh whilst enjoying the company of like minded friends!
Meetings start promptly at 7.30 pm every Monday from 13th April at the ODDFELLOWS HALL, 22 The Avenue, Watford. WD17 4NS
There are a limited number of parking spaces behind the hall, free parking further down The Avenue after 6.30, or the public car park in the centre (called The Avenue car park) in the roundabout by the library. There are also parking meters at the bottom of Malden Rd which are free in the evening.
No subscriptions, just pay £3.50 at the door and enjoy the evening including free coffee and biscuits
