About Us

The Royal Holloway Writing Society was founded to give writers of all levels an opportunity to learn, write and share! Whether you are a seasoned novelist, a ballad-writing amateur or want to fill the 8th notebook you just bought from Paperchase, this is the society for you!

We meet every week and our sessions are split into two parts: a workshop and a social. The workshops give our writers a chance to learn new skills, discuss projects and practice with prompts. The focus of our sessions can be anything from novel writing and poetry to screenwriting – there is something for everyone! The workshop is followed by a social, relaxed informal atmosphere, where you can share your writing and get to know the rest of the group! Where this social will be confirmed closer to September. 

Outside of the writing prompt meetings, we have so much more to offer you - from movie nights, quiz nights, open mic sessions and guest speakers. There’ll be plenty of chances to have a laugh, share your work, inspire yourself and learn from each other!


Purchasing a membership to Writing Society will give you access to all our normal workshops and special events, including movie nights, open mic sessions, and guest speakers. Our membership fee for 2022/23 will be £4, and this will contribute to the running of the society.

Weekly Workshops and Socials

Our weekly workshops will be held in Windsor 1-04 between 18:00/6PM and 19:00/7PM every Monday (with a break during reading week). Our socials will be held in Crosslands after every session.

Over the course of the year, we plan to host a wide number of events, including:

  • Writing workshops and socials
  • Movie & Quiz nights
  • Christmas quiz and celebration
  • Open Mic Sessions
