Monthly writing support groups

The Byre Writers will organise monthly writing support group sessions which are open to anyone. The sessions will be facilitated by a member of the Byre Writers. Attendance at these does not make you a member of the Byre Writers. The focus will be on providing encouragement and support to writers. These sessions are not a taught course and, whilst writing prompts may be used, there is no guarantee that this will happen. Please be advised that the sessions will not lead to the production of an anthology or any other form of publicised work as the promotion of work for a public audience will be part of our projects. Being a participant in our support groups also means you are invited to attend the sessions listed on the events page of our website for free.    Please email Kathryn at to book a place and for details of how to pay and receive the Zoom codes.    The writing support group sessions will be via Zoom. Details are as follows: Group
