dalkeithDalkeith has a friendly group of writers with a broad range of types of writing in progress. However, no experience is necessary, and those who come to the meeting with nothing to read out still play an active and welcome part in the critiques and lively discussions.


Our members’ interests include poetry, short story and novel writing , writing for children, drama and humour. There are no limitations. Two members have recently launched their first novels.
