East Anglian Writers

East Anglian Writers, based in Norwich, was formed in the 1960s. We aim to bring together professional writers working or living in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire.

We have approximately 230 members across the region who come from a variety of disciplines. We hold social and professional networking events throughout the year to break the isolation of writing and to help members promote their work. Our three main events are a spring outing in April or May, a summer garden party in June or July and our Christmas party. We also organise occasional events such as cinema and theatre trips, and we meet each month for an informal get together. Please see the events page for our upcoming meetings and join our facebook group to join in the discussion!

We also sponsor the 'Book by the Cover Award' at the annual East Anglian Book Awards ceremony, held every November under the auspices of the National Centre for Writing, the University of East Anglia, Jarrolds and Archant.

All members in the area are welcome. Please contact Alison for more information.
