Responding to someone else's writing

Greetings fellow writer,

We’re a bunch of cutting-edge literary artists tortured by our own genius, who meet once a month to help keep the madness at bay.

We have found that writing together can lead to the most wondrous bursts of inspiration. Just being in a room filled with other writers sharing thoughts and ideas, exchanging writing tips and techniques, can be an incredibly gratifying experience.

Many of us met through the worldwide annual writing marathon Nanowrimo, when thousands of writers around the world attempt to write a 50.000 word novel during the 30 days of November.

This is, of course, by no means a criteria to join our group.  Anybody is welcome! It simply means that, from September onwards, our group activities will tend to focus on preparing for the next Nanowrimo in November.

Though some of us have reached the stage where we are seriously contemplating publication, many of us still write just for fun.  You'll find, therefore, that our sessions will lean towards the creative process of writing, rather than the more analytical editing stage.

Want to know more about how things work?  Drop me a line and I'll be happy to answer any of your questions.  :-)

When and where

We meet every last Sunday of the month (with the odd exceptions) at the ABC Treehut in the Hague. Take a look under 'Upcoming Meetings' in the left-hand column of this page for the exact dates this year. The ABC Treehut is located in the  American Book Center, a bookstore in the city centre of the Hague, specialising in English language books. 

This location gives us access to a secluded space where we can immerse ourselves in writing discussions and activities to our hearts' content.  

Contribution fee

We charge a small contribution fee to cover the costs for rent and consumptions.  
The contribution fee is:  €8 per person (per session)

New members

Think this sounds interesting, but not sure if we're the right group for you?  Come and meet us!  

Your first session with us will be free.  After this you can decide whether or not to join us on a regular basis.


Please contact Suzanna, and come along to our next meeting for a relaxed Sunday afternoon of literary fun and inspiration.  We'll be sure to have a cup of tea or coffee waiting for you!                                                                                         

Hope to see you soon!
