Love to write?

What has about 40 legs, drinks tea, laughs and writes furiously? Well, on a good Tuesday night, that's us.

We're a friendly group of writers who meet weekly at An Lanntair in Stornoway. We're open to anyone over the age of 16, writing in any genre or style, and at any level of ability.

If you want to join us, come along to one of our meetings (no need to book in advance, just turn up) or contact us if you want to know more.
