We are a writing group based in Norwich. We welcome writers of all genres, ages, experience, and skill level. Whether you’re just starting out, already published, or just looking to get out and meet new people, we’d be delighted to meet you.

Our goal is to help our members grow as writers and as such we offer a varied programme which includes writing workshops, manuscript critique evenings, and guest speakers from the publishing industry.

We also welcome guests, so if you’re only looking to attend one or two meetings, please do come along. The more the merrier.

We meet twice a month on the first and third Tuesday of the month between September and July. We don’t hold meetings over the summer.

If you are interested in joining, please check out our membership page for more details, or email our membership secretary Kathy Joy:



In 1943, and at the height of World War II, a small group of dedicated writers, amateur and professional, joined together and established Norwich Writers’ Circle.

The aim of the founders was “to encourage the art and craft of writing and promote good fellowship amongst Norfolk and Norwich writers generally”.

Our founders’ aim remains unchanged, and it is with that spirit that our Circle continues to flourish today.


We hold a yearly Programme of meetings from September through to July, meeting every first and third Tuesday at The Chantry Hall, Chantry Road, Norwich, NR2 1QZ, which is behind Chapelfield shopping centre, to the left of MAP, behind Wagamama restaurant.
