About WWC

Worcester Writers’ Circle (WWC or The Circle) is an enthusiastic group who enjoy writing for pleasure and publication. Some of us are beginners, and waiting for our big break, others are experienced professionals who have had their work published.
WWC was established in 1941 and is the longest continuously active writers’ group in the country.
Novelist Caroline Graham is our Patron and lifetime member.

If you write, we may be able to help you.
We encourage all aspects of writing from short stories, novels, articles, poetry, plays and even pantomime. We provide you with a forum to test out your ideas.

At meetings we:

  • Share our work
  • Offer help and constructive criticism
  • Suggest possible markets
  • Hold discussions on different aspects of writing
  • Host speakers

Why not come along and see if we are what you are looking for? Guests are always welcome.
The annual subscription is £18.


WWC had its first meeting on June 26th 1941 and has met continuously ever since. During that time it has had a variety of members who have all shared a common enthusiasm for writing.

WWC includes both professional writers and beginners, and everyone is encouraged to bring work to read at the twice monthly meetings which are currently held in Dancox House, St Clement’s Gardens, Worcester on the first and third Tuesday of each month. Starting at 7.30pm, they last for two hours. Encouragement and gentle criticism are offered together with suggestions on markets that could be approached.

WWC occasionally have talks by experts in some field. All types of writing are covered: novels, stories, articles, drama, poetry and ‘fillers’.

If they then wish to join the Circle, the Committee will review and consider their application for membership.
