Ampthill Writers’ Group

Do you write stories, blogs, poems, plays or non-fiction?
If you’re in or around Ampthill, Bedfordshire then you’re more than welcome to join us.  We focus on being sociable, because writing can be a lonely business.  So, whether you’ve been writing for years or you’re just starting out then come along.  We meet to encourage one another.  There are no formal readings, there’s nothing to prepare, just turn up for a drink and chat about your work in progress… or not, because we know that feeling too.
