About Cardiff Writers’ Circle

Our aims are to foster the art of writing in all its forms; to give help and guidance to members, especially those writing for publication; to provide a friendly and welcoming meeting ground for all persons who are sympathetic to these aims.

We meet every Monday evening and pride ourselves on our inclusive membership currently numbering approximately 40 adults from all backgrounds.  A number of our current and past members are published writers.  Our usual base is the YMCA in Shakespeare Street off City Road but since the Covid crisis some meeting are held by Zoom.  

Most meetings are ‘open manuscript’ in which members read from and receive constructive feedback on their work. There is zero censorship. Meetings are safe spaces for members at all stages of development to test out their work.  Additionally, CWC holds five annual competitions: short story, poetry, flash fiction, and two for short humorous pieces.  Our members have performed at open mike sessions at Cardiff’s  Little Man and 200 Degrees coffee shops.   We published Write on Cardiff, our first anthology in 2019 and early in 2021 ran a successful series of short story writing workshops led by Mab Jones for our members. The workshops were generously supported by Literature Wales.
