“You’ve come to write as free men, women and children, and free men, women and children you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you write?”

“We all have a book, a memoir, a story to tell, go back in time as far as you can remember, for each lifetime has something to reveal to you.”

We welcome writers of all abilities, interests, and genres. The Borders Writers’ Forum is a friendly and supportive group for anyone in the Scottish Borders who writes or has an interest in writing.

For any clarification about anything related to the Forum, please email borderswritersforum@gmail.com

Our aims are to:

  • Promote and raise the profile of contemporary local writers;
  • Provide a focus for writing related events in the Scottish Borders;
  • Provide networking opportunities;
  • Support professional development through talks, regular reading opportunities and workshops;
  • Provide opportunities for writers to present and promote their work, including sale of books.
  • Members are invited to promote their books and writing events on our Facebook page.
