Welcomes writers at all levels in their skills development, from beginners to published writers
We share our writing among friends enjoying mutual support and encouragement

Hello - Welcome to Tuam Creative Writers'

This year we will meet twice a month, on the first and third Wednesdays, from 6pm to 8pm.

Our venue is The Family Centre – SVP House, Dublin Road, Tuam H54AH75.

The membership fee is €25 annually and €2 per meeting to cover refreshments.

At our meetings we sit around a table. Then we are given a broad theme to inspire us and spend an hour writing about it. All responses are acceptable.

Then, over refreshments, people are given time to read out their contributions, if they so desire. In return they are given suggestions and positive affirmation from others in the group. Our aim is to learn from each other.

Members are free to further develop what they have written during the meeting at home and have it published on our site in the public or members only areas.
Members are also encouraged to write on any topic they choose and in a form of their choice. These contributions will be published on our public site if the author wishes.

Our members vary in age and experience and this diversity greatly adds to the creativity of the club.

We like to recall and remember, to make sense of our experiences while at the same time developing an appropriate style.

Feel free to drop into any of our meetings to see and hear what we do. There is no obligation to join.

The following are examples of our writing. We hope you enjoy them and that they inspire you to come to one of our meetings.

"Enjoy reading some of our recent work."
