The Delft Writing Group meets every Wednesday evening at 19:30 at ‘t Klooster in Delft. Every week, we have a short writing-related workshop that begins at 19:30. This includes some information on a topic and usually a short assingment. From 20:00 until 22:00 we have a free writing session. If you do not wish to join for the workshop, please arrive at 20:00, as to not disrupt the workshop.
You do not need to register to join, though should you want to be kept up to date about the organisation, you can subcribe via our registration form.
Further, on the first Wednesday of the month, the we host a critique session. Each month, every member submits a piece of writing, from any genre, to be critiqued by the group. We welcome writers from all levels of experience. Submissions to the writing group must be in English.
