About Us

'South Lakes Writers' is a writing group based in Kendal, Cumbria. We meet once a week in term time to take part in writing exercises and to share and discuss our work in a mutually supportive environment. 


Writing can be a lonely business and there are times when we need a listening ear or some words of wisdom from others who've been there, done that to keep going. Whether you write fiction, non-fiction, poetry, short stories, novels and even scripts for stage or screen, our aim is to encourage your creative process and to inspire some creative moments. 

Beyond this, between us, we have experience of self-publishing, traditional publishing, blogging and finding an agent, so if publication is your holy grail, we might be able to help you with that too.

The group is led by Claire Griffel. Everyone is welcome, regardless of ability or writing experience. Why not come along and see what you can do?
