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:

  • 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.


In-person meetings are currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions placed on public gatherings. Meetings for the foreseeable future will take place online via Zoom.


The membership fee for 2020-21 is £15. This entitles a member to log in to all online Zoom sessions and to attend future live events, if and when public gatherings are permitted. Membership will run until August 2021 (inclusive).

For payment details and further information, please email secretary Tony Parkinson at tony65parkinson@gmail.com


Event details for the 2020-21 session will be posted on the What’s Next page.
