Federation of Writers (Scotland)

Bringing Writers Together

The Federation aims to support writers by making the whole process much easier to negotiate, from starting to write to publication. We can help you to find a writing group in your area, tell you where you can perform (if that is your wish) and help with the process of getting published.

We recognise that writing groups can be quite isolated, and aim to offer them opportunities to meet by mounting seminars and workshops on key themes. The Federation provides a place for writers to sell collections and anthologies at our events, when appropriate.

Who Are We ?

There are a number of individuals who work tirelessly to support and develop the work of the FWS, both as Board Members ( or more correctly Charity Trustees ) and a range of others who work to forward the aims of the FWS, including in supporting the creation of publications, in acting as selectors and advisors, editing and proof reading, ambassadors and patrons of the organisation. We are very grateful for their input.
