The Plymouth Proprietary Library Writer's Group are changing venue and as of next month will be meeting at the Plymouth Arts Centre who like the library, are also a Registered Charity. This is largely due to the popularity of the group and the space needed to incorporate everyone comfortably. More contact details will follow shortly.

Ruth has now stepped back from co-ordinating the Plymouth Proprietary Library Writers Group due to a variety of other commitments (least of all her full time job!). Thank you to everyone for all the support since I started the Group up in 2009; we've had considerable success in seeing some of our members published. I now have more serious literary aims I need to achieve and Plymouth is generally a literary desert - a Ground Zero for culture. It is an uphill climb to obtain the right support. So, I am spending more and more time away from Plymouth in order to harness the right help for my creative writing. Good luck to all the writers - I will still be around but need to catch up on many elements of my life which all went on hold for the library. I've realised the best thing about Plymouth is the road leading out of it ...

The gathering of the Plymouth Proprietary Library Writers Group will take place on Saturday 1 June 2013 from 10:00 - 12:00. The outcome of the library's AGM on 18 June 2013 may dictate how and where the Writers will meet in future, as we will remain autonomous and not be connected in any way to any other institutions. Other venues have been offered to us if required but attendance and membership will be closely regulated to PPL members only. We will enact our own Conflict of Loyalties for the purpose of the Writers Group.

There will be a Thomas Hardy Walk around parts of Plymouth on Sunday 28 April 2013. Thomas Hardy's wife, Emma, was born in Plymouth and the writer himself often mentioned the city in his work. The walk will be led by Bob Mann, a Devon historian and people will meet outside Plymouth Railway Station at 11:15am. There is no charge and a gathering in the pub will follow.
