York Novelists is a group of aspiring novelists who meet regularly in York, near The Minster to read and review each others’ work (we critique using the Milford method). Group members provide honest and supportive criticism with the goal of working toward publication. Members travel from as far as Harrogate to the regular meetings, so living in York is not a prerequisite.
Are you working on a novel in isolation? Looking for some constructive feedback? Read all the ‘how to’ books and now you want to see if they’ve paid off? Look no further. The York Novelists has run several Workshops on things to consider when starting or joining a writing group (handouts from the sessions are availabe in our Resources section) and we’re happy to offer advice. In addition, we are happy to facilitate communication between writing groups with the purpose of growing membership or sharing achievements.
