"Being a part of the Sevenoaks Bookshop Writers’ Group has been an incredibly important part of my journey towards becoming a writer.  The group is small and friendly and has so many positives but if I had to pick the top three ways in which it has benefitted me personally, I would say that firstly it gave me ‘permission’ to call myself a writer. It also provided much needed momentum to keep me on track, regularly creating and sharing pieces with the group, and thirdly it opened my eyes to the many different routes towards and aspects of actually being published with a wide range of topics up for discussion, and a series of very credible guest speakers. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my two years with this group and would recommend it to anyone who wants to write."
Linden, current member of  the writers group
