Guidance and support
Welcome to the Wee Story Society!
Come along to engage with other writers - write new prose, share, read, and discuss the existential dread that comes hand in hand with writer's block.
The WSS is a 1-year-old society and we pride ourselves on accepting anyone and everyone, of all backgrounds and levels of experience. Whether you've never written creatively before and you're interested in doing so, or you've been scribbling since you could hold a pen, all are welcome. Come and connect with fellow writers and learn something new. We aim to give emerging writers an encouraging and supportive environment, where we can feel that our stories are being heard.
Our meetings will function slightly differently this year - we will meet on zoom once a month (please see our events page to sign up) to socialise, share prompts, and discuss work. We have a Google Drive folder which will be open to members throughout the semester where you can share your own work and read the work of other members, ready for the zoom meeting. We will also publish work (with the author's permission) on our Instagram page sporadically, so make sure to give us a wee follow!
We also will be aiming to have more established writers come in to give talks and hold Q&A's - last year we had Chris McQueer come in and chat to us about his writing process and do a reading, however, this will be slightly different this year as the society will operate completely online. More details about these events will be announced when we know them.
