Our new manifesto reflects interesting plans ahead outlining events (when it is permissible) in London, exciting writing competitions covering different genres and a new-look and new name to our quarterly magazine - now renamed the SWWJ Journal. Currently, we are meeting virtually through social media platforms with our Council and members around the world. Why not take a look at our website and join us? www.swwj.co.uk.
The SWWJ is the UK's longest-established Society for professional women writers. Founded in 1894 by newspaper proprietor Joseph Snell Wood, the Society has grown to become an international association, and is affiliated to women's associations worldwide. In 2004, the Society took the decision to invite men who are published writers to join us as Associate Members. We also welcome aspiring writers and non-writing Friends from across the publishing industry and beyond.
In 2017 Baroness Floella Benjamin agreed to become our new President, following in the footsteps of the late and much missed Victoria Wood.
