Who are we?

This site has been created for the writers and artists who have joined the Bath Writers & Artists Group currently organised by Sue Boyle.  There will be regular Posts  about the new project including advance programmes and feedback reports on the bi-monthly meetups in the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution  in Queen Square, Bath. Please sign up to follow this blog if you would like to receive our posts and use the contact box if you would like to join the group.

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

Our afternoon meetups are open to anyone who wants to come, and are free of charge, but  ‘stage 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 BRLSI room hire in 2018 was generously been covered by the twenty one subscribers, who have also had morning workshop and book launch entitlement.

The regularly updated  Subscribers & Afternoon Contributors Page  (click link) will give you an idea of the kinds of contributions different people have been making to the group. We are ALWAYS delighted to welcome new people into this active group, if we have vacancies.  It would be difficult  to participate fully in our activities if you are not really comfortable with email and internet.

There are several ways to navigate this blog. The tabs below the header give you ‘parent’ Pages where you will find 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. Most often, people like to update their own Pages by becoming editors of the blog.

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