Authors Welcome

If you’re a writer or interested in writing, and you are in or around London, Ontario this is the place for you. The London Writers Society provides information, community, and exposure for new and experienced writers–and all people interested in writing.

Who We Are

The London Writers Society (LWS) was founded in 2007 to provide community, information and exposure for new and experienced writers in and around London, Ontario. We welcome those eager to directly engage other members, as well as those who prefer to digest our resources at their own pace.

LWS is particularly proud of our inclusivity to writers at all levels. Members include those interested in writing, budding authors, writing educators, and widely-published authors. (Visit our Authors Profiles page to read their biographies and explore their work.)

Writing can be a fulfilling yet isolating experience. Join us. Let’s get lost in pages full of words together.

Become A Member

Membership in the London Writers Society is the best writing bargain to be had — only $40 a year to join our creative community. If you want to attend a meeting or two before you join, that is certainly fine.

You can join LWS in one of the following ways: in person at one of our General Membership Meetings, by mailing a cheque, or by purchasing a membership on our website.

How We Support London & Area Authors

At the LWS, we particularly seek to help writers find a sense of community as we engage in a craft that is both uniquely self-enlightening and yet at times isolating. Our activities reflect this focus.

Membership Meetings

Meetings — held on the third Tuesday of every month — are a great place to connect with other writers and the writing-interested. The focus of each meeting ranges from guest speakers to mini-workshops.

CRITIQUE GROUPS

For many members, our online critique groups are a key attraction of the LWS. They bring writers together with peers for (digital) face-to-face comments and suggestions on their work.

Events

From Author Days to genre-inspired field trips, LWS holds a variety of engaging events designed to inform, entertain and provide members with a platform for their work.
