The Geneva Writers’ Group holds regular writing workshops online, and in person, from September through June. We have a great line up for the 2023-2024 season including zoom and in-person workshops in central Geneva, open mic nights and a couple of holiday socials. They are all advertized here in our events section, on the GWG Facebook page, and in our monthly newsletter. In the meantime, check out Scribbles with GWG below, which is a new monthly meet up for members that kicked off in September.
Scribbles with GWG
Sarah Tinsley (first on left) has been running her Scribbles workshops online for several years, creating a vibrant and inspirational online community for creatives all over the world.
Now she’s teamed up with the Geneva Writers’ Group to offer in-person meet-ups for our members in the first week of the month in central Geneva.
If you’re looking for ideas or prompts to help you keep writing on new or existing projects, if you’d like to connect with local writers or creatives, Scribbles is for you! Several ideas that started as a ‘scribble’ for attendees have ended up being a part of their published portfolio. All levels are welcome, at a special price for GWG members.
Sarah is an award-winning short story writer and novelist with over twenty years’ experience in education. She’s been working as a facilitator and mentor for other writers for many years, creating tailor-made programmes for individual writers and offering workshops on a range of topics from creative non fiction to editing. She has an MA from City University, her first novel was published in 2022 and won the Spread the Word/Bookouture Prize in 2020. She won the Segora International Short Story competition in 2015, came third in the Bristol Short Story Prize in 2021 and was shortlisted for the Bath Short Story Award in 2023.

Small writing groups
Small critique groups offer writers the benefit of regular feedback from fellow writers. The groups provide a more long-term writing community where writers can establish achievable goals for themselves.
By creating fellowship and friendships on the writing journey, disappointments and successes alike are shared. Groups generally consist of 6-8 members and meet once a month in whichever is the most convenient location for the most members involved.
Critiquing groups are run independently by their members, but the GWG can help connect you to existing groups in and around Geneva that are open to new members, or to other writers looking to form a new group.
