Swansea & District Writers Circle (SDWC)

A group of people from all walks of life and backgrounds, who are passionate about writing.

Welcome to Swansea and District Writers' Circle

SDWC is all about promoting the art of writing.  Set up in 1954, we’re still going strong and we love to welcome new members.

Everyone is welcome to our main meeting in Swansea, held on the first Wednesday of the month, where we invite guest speakers to talk about writing and publishing. Usually there is a Zoom link for those who can’t attend. We also have an informal Feedback Group and Poetry Group, where members share their writing and provide each other with encouragement and support.  Find out more about us
