Peterborough SF
Writers' Group


Guest number



Peterborough's own SF writers' group was founded in 1994, and meets every other month in an informal setting to workshop stories and scenes from novels, produce instant writing, and discuss working methods and techniques. A "do-it-yourself" lunch is a feature of the day, and provides a social focus for what can after all be an isolated and lonely activity. The regular group consists of Helen and Mike Gould, Cardinal Cox (a.k.a. Pete, chairbadger extraordinaire of the Peterborough SF club), Darren Oldman, Nicki Beales and Sam Malone, with other occasional members.
Membership of the Peterborough SF club is not a condition of membership of the Writers' Group.

We cover SF, fantasy and horror, and aim to provide space in which these genres can flourish, where members can get feedback about their work from other writers in these genres, unbiased by mainstream hang-ups.
