Join Us

Whether you’re writing to engage with the world or to escape it, all writers are welcome here. Our aim is to be mindful and focus our energies on the writing space we create together.

An offshoot of the London Writers’ Salon (LWS) Writers Hours – which happen four times a day, Monday to Friday – Weekend Morning Writers (WMW) is an informal gathering of writers using the same LWS magic and allowing ourselves a 30 minutes’ weekend lie-in before we meet on Zoom every Saturday and Sunday.

We organise sessions at the following times around the world: 

  • 08:30-09:30 IST
  • 08:30-09:30 GMT
  • 08:30-09:30 EST* 
  • 08:30-09:30 PST* 

* While the room is always open at the EST and PST times, those sessions are organised casually on the day by one of the volunteers in the collective. 

ZOOM LINK

We have the same Zoom link that works for all of the scheduled sessions, as well as the spontaneous sessions.

We’re a mix of writers – published, just starting, working on many different styles from poetry to fiction, college essays, journalism and more. Everyone is very welcome. Our connection is the hour that we spend together, writing in silence, in community. After the sessions some writers stay on to chat together and exchange ideas – always optional.

SPONTANEOUS SESSIONS

The room is also open and available for writers to arrange spontaneous sessions and write together outside of the scheduled times – and avoiding the LWS hours. We encourage you to arrange those sessions through our lively WhatsApp group where people also exchange ideas about writing, as well as links to their recent work.

If you would like to meet outside our set sessions please make sure you have arranged to write with others, and avoid WMW & LWS sessions [see more at <spontaneous sessions> link]. 

STAYING CONNECTED:

WHATSAPP & SIGNAL

We have set up groups – on two platforms – which we use to send alerts in advance of the scheduled sessions that will be hosted by the WMW collective. WMW community members also use these groups to find each other for spontaneous sessions, and to share support and information about writing.

Weekend Writers is a mixed, global community. You might want to mute the group if you find the notifications too much, especially when you sleep! It includes a wide range of ages, political persuasions and views about many issues. Please use these groups to find people to write with, and also to share and discuss writing – only!

Join us here (WhatsApp) or here (Signal)

For writers in Asia and Australia, New Zealand and nearby (in time) can join (here) a smaller WhatsApp group that meets at weekends & also gathers during the week.

If you choose to join these groups, please check our guidelines here
