We’ve set up the READeasy Writers’ Group to be a safe and encouraging space for writers to meet up, hear their words read, and get constructive critical feedback. The next open session is at the Forest, Bristo Place, 6 – 9pm, Thursday 7th April.
It’s open to writers of any style, experience, identity and genre — but places each month are limited. To secure a slot, e-mail inkyfingersedinburgh AT gmail DOT com in advance with your name and a piece of your writing attached — and then just come along on the night with cake and a ready mind. See the Writers’ Group page for full instructions (including length limits).
Some things people have said about the group:
“I have always wanted to attend a group like this to share and get feedback on my work. However, I was always too nervous to share my work with so many other writers at one time. The Inky Fingers method is very good because it allows you to share your work anonymously, while still receiving feedback. I found it to be an excellent experience with lots of good discussion amongst a very nice bunch of people.”
“Great, very welcoming group!”
“This discussion gave me the confidence to get up at the next Inky Fingers open mic event and read one of my stories on stage, something I have never done before.”
“The atmosphere was great and the other authors present were an interesting bunch!”
