HOW DO I JOIN A MEETING FOR THE FIRST TIME?

We are always delighted to meet prospective members and you're welcome to attend as a visitor for as many meetings as you like before  deciding to join us. The visitor cost is £5, payable at the meeting.

If you have any queries then please use the contact page on this website. Alternatively you can email chilternwriters@outlook.com or contact us via Facebook or Twitter (@ChilternWriters).

DO I HAVE TO BE A MEMBER TO PARTICIPATE?

You do not need to be a member to take part in the meetings, including reading out your own material at our manuscript evenings. You are also welcome to attend our Christmas social in December. 

However, if you wish to enter our annual writing competition then you do need to be a paid-up member of Chiltern Writers. 

IF I JOIN CHILTERN WRITERS WILL ANY VISITOR FEES BE REFUNDED?

We are unable to refund any visitor fees paid unless you decide to join the group, in which case that evening's visitor fee will count towards the cost of membership.
