Welcome to the West Lothian Writers’ Website.

Our aim is to support anyone living in or from West Lothian with their creative writing. We meet every second Tuesday in the South Barn of Nether Dechmont Farm between 7pm and 9pm. At our meetings we give our members the chance to present their creative writing by reading it a loud to the members and then receiving friendly and constructive feedback. All feedback is suggestive so you don’t have to follow any of it if you don’t want to. We ask that any work being presented follow these rules:

  • Please make pieces 1500 words or less
  • Please print out your piece on A4 paper, single sided with at least 1.5 spacing
  • Please bring seven or more copies.
  • Include page numbers or line numbers if possible.
