Founded in 2017, Write-on is a voluntary, not-for-profit Community-based Group. As the name implies, we are interested in writing in all of its different forms. We welcome people who write poems, short stories, memoirs, songs, scripts for dramas, fiction or non-fiction works. We provide a safe and secure haven for creativity and we aim to encourage people of all levels in their writing endeavours.
In September of each year, to coincide with Culture Night, we publish an Anthology of the best of our writing throughout the year. These Anthologies have grown in size and popularity over the years. We are currently collecting material for the Write-on Anthology 2022.
As well as producing the annual Anthology, we also honour certain of our members who have created a body of work of a sufficiently high standard to merit its own publication. To date, we have published three of these books, BUILDING NEW BRIDGES by Frank Fahy; NEW DAWN by Anne McManus; OUT OF THE BLUE by Elizabeth Hannon. We propose to publish a COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES by Anne McManus in Spring 2021.
Write-on is a Community Group
Voluntary, not-for-profit organisation. There is no charge to the authors for the set-up costs or for the publication costs of these books. All monies made from sales of books, membership, or other activities are ploughed back into the Group for future publications and literary events. In this way, we can continue to publish more books for other members in the future.
Write-on has links with members in Ireland, UK, France, Spain, South Korea, USA and Australia.
