Writers and Readers Group

This group is open to all members, and generally meets at Muirhead Tower on the Edgbaston Campus of  University of Birmingham.

It provides support, encouragement and advice to members who are interesting in using their experiences to write and also share inspirational reading. Some members of this group have had their work published over the years:

In the UK through Chipmunka publishing

In Slovenia, through Renata Ažman.

Renata was a mental health survivor and published author who held creative writing workshops with the Writers and Readers Group. You can read some of our members’ tributes to Renata here.

Reasonable travel expenses for attending the group’s meetings are paid to members, living in the Midlands, subject to a maximum of £15.
