Bridgend Writers' Circle Programme for 2020/2021

Due to the continuing uncertainty regarding meeting face to face, the Committee have decided to continue with the monthly meetings via the Zoom platform. The Committee also decided at the AGM to abandon all internal competitions (apart from the Saviker and Keith Coles poetry competition for the time being) due to the ongoing situation.

To encourage regular writing, we've introduced an optional ‘prompt’ (see below) which our members can then read out at our monthly Zoom meetings. We’d like as many members (new and current) to take part so please restrict your writings to a maximum of 1200 words so everyone has a chance to share their work.


If you're unable to or prefer not to read out yourself, you can just email your writing to and the Chair will appoint someone to read on your behalf. As a group, we'll always support each other in our work and offer constructive critique or make suggestions wherever we can.


Get in touch if you'd like to join in and, if you've been in touch but haven't yet had the courage to join in, please don't be shy

Internal Competitions
