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

Our aims are to:

  • Provide networking opportunities;
  • Support professional development through talks, regular reading opportunities and workshops.

We meet at 7pm for refreshments and the main meeting begins at 7.20pm.

A warm welcome awaits members and visitors.
