Our History

Sapphist Writers was set up in 2007 to provide a space where women writers can come and be themselves. Lesbian love poetry and alternative viewpoints aren't always comfortable to air in general writing groups. We needed a space of our own. One sufficiently nurturing (and gently challenging!) to give us a chance to grow as writers, and develop the strength of our individual and collective voices.

A year and a half later we're going strong; our meetings are relaxed and fun but writing matters to us, and we are working towards an anthology of our work. Some members come every month, others drop in from time to time or contribute online. We are always happy to welcome new members.

Our next meeting is Monday, 9th February at 7.15.

Check out our exhibit at the Nottinghamshire Rainbow Heritage Project's exhibition, opening Tuesday 17th February, 7-9pm at the View from the Top Gallery above Waterstone's.
