The AMED Writers' Group (AWG) 2020

Your invitation

Do come and join us for any of our highly participative gatherings that explore the role and contribution of writing, reading and conversations, interacting, in our personal and professional lives.

We are a friendly, open, informal and generous community of writing practice. We welcome anyone who is interested in any form or context of writing, reading and conversation for personal, professional, organisational or creative development. As critical friends, we are always looking for opportunities to support and celebrate each other’s writing/reading projects, enthusiasms and interests, in any way we can.

Normally, we meet on the 3rd Friday afternoon of every even-numbered month at Roots and Shoots, London SE11 6DN from 1.15 to 4.30 pm, unless shown otherwise.

Our AWG schedule for 2020

So far, we have planned the following list of events for 2020. We may add others from time to time. These events are open to everyone, whether or not they are fully subscribing AMED Members. So please feel free to spread the word.

Must admit, I thought that I had joined a while back. Anyway Bob, better late than never...
No questions at the moment (- or answers!)

Hi Peter,
Instead of looking for an agent, I wonder if you have considered Publish on Demand? That is working very well for my admittedly non-fiction book. I used viral marketing to get the message out. I'd be happy to share my experience with you - or anyone else who might be interested.

Hi Gill

Here are some notes on Writers' Block that I prepared for a previous AWG session. Let me know if they help, or if you'd like to discuss anything about them. Best wishes. BobUnblocking our Writing BM 17 Dec 08 v1.doc

Any suggestions for overcoming writers block? I can have lots of interesting thoughts and ideas for articles, or have done all the analysis for factual piece of work - but somehow getting that first paragraph on to the screen is really difficult.

Until I'm right up against the deadline when I just slap down any old thing and cross my fingers :-)

Any/all suggestions gratefully received

Sorry, Peter

I called you Paul in my previous message. A case of mistaken identity! BW. Bob
Comment by Bob MacKenzie on May 6, 2009 at 7:24
Hi, Paul
It's often a case of asking other published authors' experiences - and there are a few of those in the AWG. Also, Paul Z Jackson has opened a Forum in the AMED Network Home Page on 'Publ;isher looking for book proposals', which you might wish to pursue. And then there's the AWG pubishing session on 21 August with Andrew Carey of Triarchy Press. So maybe you'll get some leads from there? Le's see if anyone else has some ideas. Kind regards. Bob

Hi, Peter

Petrhaps you could make a start by consulting McCall Smith, A. (2008). Writers' and Artists' Yearbook 2008. London, A & C Black Publishers Ltd. in your local library?

Best wishes. Bob

Well, Belina, they say it's never too late - or early ....!
