Who we are
Discovery Writers enjoy the written word, sharing insights, humour and drama through stories, memoirs and poems.
What we do
We meet on the last Tuesday of each month (not January) to read and discuss our current works. Each year we choose a writing theme and upskill our knowledge through workshops. Discovery Writers welcomes all who enjoy writing to come and share in our friendship afternoons.
