About Us

RWG, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2022, is the longest established writers’ group in the city. We are a friendly group of published and yet to be published individuals who meet once a fortnight.
We are always happy to welcome potential new members and to co-operate with other writers’ groups over speakers, adjudications and social events.

Where We Meet

Our current venue is the St Wilfrid’s Community Centre on Trinity Lane, generally in the Jervaulx Room (seen above with the bay window). The gates to the main entrance are opposite Holy Trinity Infants’ School and parking for the SWCC is down to the slope to the right. Please do not park by the presbytery. We meet on alternate Wednesday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. See our programme for details.

Our friendly group meets once a fortnight at the St Wilfred's Community Centre on Trinity Lane and is always open to new members from the Ripon area and beyond. Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
