Book Groups

Love reading? Join a New Writing North book group

At a glance

Each month, our book groups meet in eight towns and cities across the North East to discuss contemporary literature, usually over a coffee or a glass of wine. All of New Writing North’s book groups are free to attend and are run by facilitators who make sure everyone gets a chance to contribute. The groups are friendly and welcoming and are always open to new members.

We are occasionally able to offer our book groups special events, including author visits, poetry workshops and book group summits at Durham Book Festival and Hexham Book Festival.
