Since 2014, I have run a local fiction writing circle here in Salisbury, called (surprisingly enough) the Salisbury Writing Circle. It's free and for anyone interested in creative writing: we meet once a month on a Wednesday at Sarum College and is a great way of meeting fellow writers, from beginners to published novelists. There are over 200 local writers on the mailing list and we get a regular attendance of 30-40. Each month we have a different guest author along to discuss their work: these have included Barney Norris, CJ Tudor, Keith Stuart, Lucy Clarke and Claire Fuller.
