Brentwood Writer's Circle was born in May 1941. Our founder, Elizabeth Baxter had problems in travelling to her favourite writers's group in the City, well, it was being bombed at the time as there was a war on! Undaunted, she started one herself, in the front parlour of her home in Brentwood. Now, 67 years later the Circle has full membership of sixty who meet monthly at the Ursuline Convent (Fairview Room), where members are encouraged in every aspect of prose writing. A workshop is held on alternate months providing opportunities for mutual criticism and exchange of ideas between writers. It provides members with advice and guidance on markets and other matters pertaining to their writing, while speakers (authors, publishers, agents etc) fill our diary in other months to make an interesting yearly programme.
