Didcot Writers is a group of local people interested in creative writing, broadly defined. We meet up and discuss our work, and share ideas, competition links, and writing tips.

Our mission is to improve our writing by taking part in range of sociable events that provide motivation, focus, develoment, and opportunities for sharing and receiving feedback on our work.


On 1st May we're celebrating all things poetry with a springtime-themed open mic. This will take place at our usual workshop venue, and drinks and other refreshments will be included in the ticket price. Find out more here.
