Gloucestershire Writers' Network

Welcome to our website

Gloucestershire Writers’ Network was established as a hub for all writers and writing groups in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire.

We run an annual competition in conjunction with The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, the winners of which have the opportunity to read their work at the GWN Prizewinners event. Please follow this link to find out about this year’s competition and how to enter in the Competition section.

We aim to be the ‘go to place’ for Gloucestershire writers – providing a central platform to communicate news, views, what’s on and competitions etc.

If you have information on forthcoming events, courses, readings or open mics that deserve a wider audience, we’d love to hear from you. We will upload relevant information as quickly as we can to help market and communicate your events.

Do you have a story to tell? Perhaps you have recently won a competition or have a book launch on the horizon – our News and Events Calendar section will keep GWN members abreast of local events and encourage attendance and access to all things creative. Please contact us on admin@gloswriters.org.uk.

Happy writing!

This website is an exciting advance in the history of GWN and we invite your active participation to improve access to members. Please have a look at various sections and let us know if we can help. Constructive feedback is always welcome and we look forward to developing this site for you.
