Meeting Times

We meet every Wednesday at Barclay Manor in the West End from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. except for statutory holidays. Barclay Manor is located at 1447 Barclay St, Vancouver, BC.

“The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live.”

—Ursula LeGuin


How Our Meetings Work

Attendance at our meetings varies from five to fourteen writers, depending on the season. You don’t have to read at every meeting. Many of our members read only occasionally but attend to take part in the critiquing.

Contact Us

If you are interested in joining us, please feel free to drop in. You’re entitled to three free visits, after which we’ll ask you to pay our annual membership fee. The membership fee is $20 per year. We use a portion of this fee to pay the West End Community Centre for use of Barclay Manor.
