We’re a small group of writers in the Dingwall area who like to meet weekly to read and listen to each others’ work. Members come and go; the group tends to stay at between six and ten – no more than can fit around a table. RW welcomes new members as long as there is mutual respect: we come to listen as well as to read. Several of our members have gone on to win prizes and publish their work nationally.
With the lifting of Covid 19 Restrictions, we reviewed our situation. We had managed to carry on during lockdown with Zoom and the occasional socially distanced meeting where restrictions permitted this. We were very pleased to have survived and decided to take a fresh look at the way we operate. Consequently, in May, we reluctantly gave up our slot at St James' Hall, and began rotating our meetings between members' homes, each taking a turn of they had the space and access for everyone that wanted to attend. This has proved to be very successful and our group continues to thrive.

Our long-standing member Catriona passed away in November 2018 after a short illness. Her wonderful storytelling skills, humour and kindess are missed by her many friends. Catriona's legacy will live on in the form of an anthology of short stories, Place with no Name. published just prior to her final illness.
An unnamed west coast village is the setting for humorous, poignant, and at times dark stories, all taking place towards the end of the 20th Century leading up to the millennium.
