Who are we?

This site was created for the writers and artists who subscribe to the Bath Writers & Artists Group.  REGULAR POSTS used to include advance programmes and feedback reports on the bi-monthly meetups in the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution  in Queen Square, Bath. ( See the in happier times note below.) 

During the Covid pandemic, our meetups have been suspended.  We do not know when they will resume.

The Zoom Events Page gives details of the meetings which various subscribers are organising for other members of the group.  Most of these have a cap on participant numbers.  Contact the host to find out if spaces are still available if you would like to participate on in one of these events.

For reasons of space, these events are not open to people who haven’t already paid their subscription to the group.

IN HAPPIER TIMES, this is who we were…….

BATH WRITERS & ARTISTS is a collaborative group who meet together in the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution in Queen Square to celebrate good writing and graphic art, explore ideas arising from their own practice,  and to showcase their own and enjoy each others’ work.

Each meeting is CURATED by different subscribers, who chose a topic they think will interest the whole group and then develop the day’s programme in response to the suggestions the other subscribers make.

Our AFTERNOON MEETUPS are usually open to anyone who wants to come, and are free of charge, but  ‘performance time’ is reserved for people who have paid the annual subscription to the group. It is not essential for subscribers to want to perform on meetup afternoons.

The dated PROGRAMME PAGES will give you an idea of the kinds of contributions different subscribers are making to the group. We are ALWAYS delighted to welcome new subscribers, if we have vacancies.  It would be difficult to participate fully in our activities if you are not comfortable with email and internet.

There are several ways to NAVIGATE this blog. The tabs below the header are often ‘parent’ Pages where you will find drop down clickable LINKS to other relevant Pages in the blog. Alternatively, the right side menu has an alphabetical list of all the viewable pages in the blog. Each one of these can be accessed with a click.

The SUBSCRIBERS Page also gives access to linked pages  where the writers and artists can introduce themselves, share photographs, write about their current project and publish extracts from ongoing work. Subscribers are encouraged to update their own Pages by becoming EDITORS of the blog.

Subscribers’ Pages and topics can also be found by using the SEARCH button
