ALL CHANGE - FRESH NEW LOOK FOR THE SOCIETY OF WOMEN WRITERS AND JOURNALISTS WITH THE PUBLICATION OF OUR BRAND NEW SPRING ISSUE

Despite the world's current terrible pandemic situation and with most of us in lockdown, the SWWJ  Council team continues to work hard. Take a look at our www.swwj.co.uk website  Big changes have recently taken place at the top bringing the super novelist Freya North on to our list of famous Patrons, with Floella, the Rt Hon.Baroness Benjamin of Beckenham working hard as our President. There's a turnaround of positions with Pamela Payne in the Vice-Chairman's chair. Happy that our Chairman Rebecca Harding has now recovered from coronavirus. 

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.
