Wrekin Writers has been in existence since the early 1980s and throughout that time, it has grown and flourished to produce a group of talented writers (well we think so anyway!). In its early years the group was fortunate enough to have as its President, a local Shropshire writer, by the name of Edith Pargeter, otherwise known as Ellis Peters, author of the Brother Cadfael books. We do have in our midst, winners of national short story competitions, poetry competitions, and writers whose work has appeared in national magazines. There are also authors of local history books and poetry collections. There are members whose books have appeared on the UK bestseller lists and in several foreign editions, as well as those who have yet to discover the joy of publication. More importantly, we also have members who enjoy writing purely for the pleasure it gives them. We're a mixed bunch, but we think we're quite friendly too.
