Here at Bunbury, we love writing. That much is obvious. Who doesn’t? As well as running our beloved magazine, we also run a regular writer’s group, where us artsy types can gather in a really nice space to share our writing and generally have a great time, giving encouragement, feedback and constructive criticism to really help each other create some strong writing.

We meet every other Tuesday at The Two Tubs Inn on The Wylde in Bury, Lancashire, at 8pm. We also hold regular live spoken word events in the same venue. There are always open mic spots available and we love to showcase some of the best talent in the area. Below is a map to find us.

Our big focus is going to be on local poetry by local writers. We will be giving prompts, themes and poetical forms to inspire writing about the area. At the group, we will be work-shopping pieces that you bring along in order to help sharpen and evolve the work. Our aim is to build a great collection of poetry by local writers. Come along and be part of it!

All we ask for all this is a £1 donation towards building a fund for the group.
