Writers club

Hey everybody!

Not sure this is the appropriate section of the forum, but I was wondering if anyone would be interested in forming something along the lines of a writers club so that we could meet, exchange ideas, read and comment on each other's stuff?

Is anyone in or around ZH into this sort of thing at all, especially screenwriting, or am I the only weirdo out there?

Re: Writers club

sounds like a good idea, but I'll only be in CH from early next year, if it's still going then I will most certainly join in

Re: Writers club

I don't read Dutch unfortunately but love all things Dutch! I lived in Amsterdam for a year and go back regularly to chill with friends.

Anyway, anybody's welcome, especially if you wanna read and comment on other people's stuff. Hey, who knows, maybe you'll get inspired to muster something up in English...

What kind of writing are you into?

Re: Writers club

Hi Daddy O

Writers in Zurich?
There's plenty going on for writers. The James Joycers, for example, is a writing group dedicated to top quality writing. PM me for details.

Organisations which support and encourage writers;
Zurich Writers Workshop - http://www.zurichwritersworkshop.com/
Nuance Words - http://www.nuancewords.com/workshop

And if you want to come along to a cheese, wine and words event just for readers and writers:
http://www.books.ch/home/veranstaltu...Detail/ARID-40

I'll be wearing a name badge - come and say hello!

Jill

Re: Writers club

Did a writer's club ever get started? I've just moved back to the Schaffhausen area for a time, and would love to meet with other writers (I'm a free lance writer). Marianne
