Truro CWG meet on the  first and third Thursdays of every month at the Royal Legion building in Truro. The Truro Creative Writers’ Group has just completed 12 productive years of good humour and good fellowship in writing. Started by the Cornish Library service in Truro it might well have folded when the need to economise forced the library to abandon its support and ask an unacceptable rental for the room.

Two determined lady members, Marian Hunt and Dawn Woon, ensured that the group continued by searching for alternative accommodation and in the course of the next four years the group met rent free, thanks to the generosity of the owners, successively at the Truro Bowl, Muffin’s Coffee Shop and the Korova café before coming to their present home, a room in the Royal British Legion in St Mary’s Street in Truro.

The objects of the group are simple – to provide a sympathetic environment within which writers can help each other to expand their know-how in all aspects of their craft – technical and practical. Marian and Dawn were joined by creative writers who, like them, have seen their writing achieve success in national and local competitions, in magazines and in the self-publishing of their own work. The emphasis of the group is on “All-rounders” but the specialities vary from poetry, local history, travel, short fiction, novels and family history. It is the aim of the group to publish regular anthologies of members’ work.  Truro Creative Writers’ Group, a member of the National Association of Writers’ Groups, meets regularly on the first and third Thursday of each month from 2 to 4 pm.

Our Objects are simple viz:

• We intend to enjoy ourselves.

• We aim to develop our skills and will tackle new writing projects to extend our range.

• We will use the superior knowledge of those of greater experience and pool resources to benefit us all and share information that might help others.
