OTTERY WRITERS began their journey nearly a decade ago and have expanded into a considerable force of literary talent with many of its members now having published their writing. Genres range from fiction, non fiction, historic, murder mysteries, children’s books, poetry and so much more.
Our aim is to encourage all local writers to have a go. So if you would like to join the group, you don’t have to a published author, just get in touch (details below) and come along. Be assured of a warm no pressure welcome. You can also enjoy listening to a range of guest speakers and participate in occasional writing workshops.
We held, with the Town Council’s support our first and highly successful Ottery Literary Festival in October 2022 to coincide with Coleridge’s 250th birthday. He would have been pleased!
