About Us

The Royal Holloway Writing Society was founded to give writers of all levels an opportunity to learn, write and share! Whether you are a seasoned novelist, a ballad-writing amateur or want to fill the 8th notebook you just bought from Paperchase, this is the society for you!

We meet every week and our sessions are split into two parts: a workshop and a social. The workshops give our writers a chance to learn new skills, discuss projects and practice with prompts. The focus of our sessions can be anything from novel writing and poetry to screenwriting – there is something for everyone! The workshop is followed by a gathering at Crosslands for a relaxed social atmosphere, where you can share your writing and get to know the rest of the group!

Outside of the weekly meetings, we have so much more to offer you - from themed socials and movie nights to trips and feedback sessions. There’ll be plenty of chances to have a laugh, share your work, inspire yourself and learn from each other!

Whether you are a die-hard member, a fair weather friend or you’re only really there for the drinking, we will welcome you!

Want to know more? Email us, drop us a message on Facebook or ask one of the committee in person - we don’t bite!

Look forward to seeing you soon!


We are also very pleased to announce that our Vice President for 2018/19, Cecilia Neil-Smith, won a Society Crest at the Societies Ball for her passion and dedication to the society.
