Largs Writers Group meets on Monday mornings from 10 o’clock till noon in Largs Library.

Subscriptions: £10 per year

Weekly collection of £1 each for use of the room.

Visitors: £2 per meeting

You might also be interested in the regular events run by our friends Poems and Pints – they meet twice a month – on the 1st Friday of the month for lunch (bring your own) at the library, 12-2pm, and on the 2nd Tuesday of the month* in The Waterside where you can buy your own pints (or whatever). The idea is to share poems and be sociable.

    Hi, I’m looking to find a good writing group, but work shifts wouldn’t let me attend in person for the most part. How do the online attendees participate?
