Open Reading / Beta Reading Group Sessions.

The Writers Initiative runs a friendly open reading / beta reading for writers to read their work back to the group and get constructive feedback. It is primarily for fiction writing, but there is also some poetry and even music lyrics that were read out once. The group has been going well and the attendees have given great feedback and have found it is a useful resource.

– It’s free to attend.

– We are aiming to arrange another session during the month so people from North America can more easily attend.

– The meetings are held online.

– It’s open to all.


If you feel a little shy about reading out your work to start with you are also welcome to attend and just listen in.
