If you have ever considered creative writing, or you are a writer interested in improving your writing...

...Mearns Writers welcomes new and practising writers. The group exists to support and promote creative writing of all kinds in the area south of Aberdeen. We comprise writers of various experience and of all abilities and styles.


The main aim of our sessions is to provide each other with helpful and constructive feedback in an atmosphere that is relaxed and friendly. Stimuli for further writing are suggested at each meeting although the most illuminating feature of these is often the lively informal discussion between members.

The group has produced anthologies of its work and performed work publicly, as well as organising regular workshops with guest writers and visits to literary events.
