Dawn’s writing groups offer a safe environment where everyone is free to explore within their own writing and listen to each other with respect.  Everyone’s writing is treated with equal respect and value as we support individual writing development. Writing is confidential within the group and treated as fiction. It is great if people share but there is no compulsion to read your work aloud. New members welcome (space permitting).



Who am I? A commissioned and published author, ex-freelance magazine feature writer, editor, hyperlocal publisher, blogger and qualified teacher who spent many years distance teaching at the Open University. Various degrees including a First in Literature, and some at postgraduate level.
