Writers in Oxford: Who We Are
Writers in Oxford is the society for Oxford and Oxfordshire’s published writers and authors. Founded in 1992 it now has over two hundred members spread across the city and county (although if you live a little way beyond you are still welcome to apply). It is run on an entirely voluntary basis by a small elected committee, with Philip Pullman as President.
The aim of Writers in Oxford is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, engagement with other writers (networking and sharing experiences) and enjoyment of talks, outings, walks and other social events with a broadly literary flavour of relevance to all kinds of writers. We welcome applications from new members, following the procedure on the Join Us page.
Writers in Oxford has a close relationship with the Society of Authors – and holds a joint annual party; but SoA provides legal and financial advice to authors, whereas the focus of WiO is more on local social contact.
