Welcome. This is a forum for writers to share their work, obtain feedback and connect with like minds.

Whatever your skill or experience, writing can be lonely and finding people willing to read your efforts and provide constructive feedback can be a challenge. Here at Waxings, we provide a ready audience for your creative output – fellow writers and others who appreciate original writing.

We also try to provide useful resources – interviews with established authors and industry experts, links to interesting websites and opportunities for writers and a regular writing competition. Our aim is to provide a safe, encouraging and inspirational space for both experienced and developing writers.

We hope you’ll join us.
