Nottingham is not only the place I began writing, it has provided me with something that other cities don’t have – the Writers’ Studio – a dynamic, vibrant community of writers in the heart of the city. Since joining I have found a place where writers thrive and feel at home. Run by writers for writers, NWS offers so many practical ways to help members develop their writing, and it opens up opportunities to make writing pay. It’s a unique organisation where members can write, share information, network and make friends in the process. I love the fact that NWS celebrates and showcases its members’ achievements.
