Write Said Fred is a fun and informal group for writers

Write Said Fred is a fun and informal group for writers of all experience levels, from those with many books published either in paper form or electronic to others just starting out.

Writing types vary from creative writing, novels and poetry to non-fiction. We moved from meeting at Caffé Nero across the road to the Saracen's Head Hotel, where we are now trying out a Sunday afternoon meeting either over a pint, glass of wine or hot drink to read out to each other what we are working on, sometimes based on a homework theme or our favourites from other authors, it is all free, and many long-standing friendships have been forged.

We have even been interviewed on the radio. Next meeting is Sunday 25th September at 1pm, all are welcome, why not join the Facebook Group or visit the Facebook page meanwhile, just search for Write Said Fred"
