About Us

Old Deanery

In 2012, Ripon Writers’ Group celebrated its 30th anniversary. Membership stands at around 25 with an average attendance at meetings of 17-20. The annual fee is £25, which can be paid in two instalments or pro rata for anyone joining part way through the year. Visitors are asked for a contribution of £2 per meeting.
We are always happy to welcome potential new members and to co-operate with other writers’ groups over speakers, adjudications and social events.

Where We Meet

The Old Deanery on Minster Road, just opposite Ripon Cathedral. Where possible, members are requested to use the car park behind Sainsbury’s (free after 6 o’clock in the evening) and walk down the footpath to Minster Road.

Our friendly group meets once a fortnight in the Old Deanery on Minstergate, opposite Ripon Cathedral and is always open to new members from the Ripon area and beyond. Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
