Supporting Berkshire writers since 2001

WordWatchers is a small group of writers based in West Berkshire whose purpose is to help writers achieve their goals. Some of us are published. Some of us have agents. And some of us are working towards that first success - however we define it.

We write in a variety of genres, from children's to romantic historical fiction to crime. What we have in common is our passion and dedication to writing, meeting up each month to share what we’ve done, discuss what’s worked and what hasn’t, and make our promises for the month ahead.

And eat cake.
