The amazing Willesden Green Writers Group is currently homeless, while Willesden Green library is being renovated.
If you know of a great free space in London where the writers could meet, do get in touch. A room with space for around 10 people would be perfect.
Keep your eye on the WGWG blog for details on when the group will restart… hopefully when the library reopens, if a temporary home can’t be found in the meantime.
Pretend Genius have just released a beautiful new collection of poetry, featuring some regular Willesden Green Writers Group writers.
Southernmost Point Guest House is a collection that brings together poetry by writers currently living in America, Britain, Ireland, Italy and New Zealand. They have little in common other than finding themselves here, in this book, and in the early part of the 21st century, with something to say. Contributors: Raewyn Alexander, Alex Barr, Lynn Blackadder, Sean Brijbasi, Susan Campbell, David Cooke, Tim Craven, Mikey Delgado, Vanessa Gebbie, Kim Göransson, James Browning Kepple, Charles Lambert, Laura Lee, Andrew Mayne, Geraldine Mills, Stephen Moran, Nuala Ní Chonchúir, Richard Peabody, Lynsey Rose, Judi Sutherland, Lee Webber. The title is taken from a poem by Alex Barr.
You can buy the book here on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/SOUTHERNMOST-POINT-GUEST-HOUSE/dp/0985213396
Don’t forget, we’d love to see you at Bar on 16 January!
Exciting news – WGWG has found a new home…
For the foreseeable future we can be found at:-
The Brent Artist Resource Gallery
Units 4 – 5 Queens Parade
We will be meeting as usual on the first and third Thursday of the month from 7.30 – 9.30pm.
No need to book, just turn up – only £3 per session attended.
16th January Free Launch Event:
We would love everyone to come along to BAR on the 16th January at 7.30pm when we will be celebrating finding a new home with a bit of a get together. There will be a few short readings from members of the group, wine, nibbles, books for sale and information about the group – not to mention a huge collective sigh of relief!
We will be beginning the normal Willesden Green Writers’ Group in our new home on January 23rd (not our usual 3rd Thursday, but we couldn’t wait!) So, if you have any writing that you would like honest feedback on, please bring it along on the night (if you are shy or just curious that’s not a problem, please feel free to come along and just sit in).
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Keep your eye on http://willesdengreenwriters.blogspot.co.uk/ for more info. We’re looking forward to moving to our new home.
