Swansea & District Writers Circle (SDWC)

A group of people from all walks of life and backgrounds. The only shared characteristic is that we are passionate about writing.

Month: January 2020

5th February: Brian John

On Wednesday, February 5th we will be hosting Brian John, scientist, geographer and writer.

Our Speaker

After an early career as a scientist and geographer, during which he led expeditions to Iceland and Greenland, Brian John began as a full-time writer and publisher in 1977. He has published hundreds of articles and around 90 books.

His novels include the 8-volume “Angel Mountain” Saga which achieved cult following, and which has now been sold to Bolinda for audiobook versions. There’s also a chiller thriller first published as “Acts of God” and recently rebranded as “Icefall Zero.” His children’s story, “The Strange Affair of the Ethiopian Treasure Chest” won the 2011 Wishing Shelf Award for books aimed at 6-8 year-olds.

Brian’s non-fiction titles range from books of jokes to walking guides and titles on local history and tradition, such as “Ghostly Tales from Pembrokeshire”, which became a Christmas best-seller in 2012, and more recently “The Stonehenge Bluestones”, published in 2018, which takes a controversial look at the origins of certain West Wales bluestones.

Whether you write or want to write, poetry, short stories, novels or plays, come along and meet some like-minded people. No experience necessary, we’d love to meet you!

We are usually in Committee room 3 but we’re occasionally moved, but the door is open for ten minutes at the start of the meeting.

8th January

WEDNESDAY JANUARY 8TH 2020 at 7:15 p.m. in the Civic Centre Swansea.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – This is your chance to discuss the speakers you would like to hear in 2020 and the topics and workshops you would like to see covered as well as help pinpoint the direction you would like Swansea Writers’ Circle to take.

After the AGM our chair, Anne Marie Thomas will enlighten everyone as to what exactly is involved in realising your dream of becoming a self-published author from perfecting your manuscript, transforming it into e-and printed book to marketing and selling your work.

We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 7:15pm, Civic Centre, Oystermouth Road, Swansea. Whether you already write or want to write, anything from poetry, short stories, novels or plays, come along and meet some like-minded people.

No experience necessary, we’d love to meet you! Car parking is free for two hours – you will need to get a free ticket from the machine.

We are usually in Committee room 3 but we’re occasionally moved, but the door is open for ten minutes at the start of the meeting.

We are always looking forward to welcoming new members!
