Afrikan Heritage Writers

AHW logo

The Afrikan Heritage Writers Group meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month. It was started in 2008, meeting in Homerton Library east London, before moving to its current home in the Dalston CLR James Library a few years later. It might well be the longest running such group in London. The group is a flagship project of the House of AMAU and the longest running one.

This mutual support group welcomes novelists, short-story writers, playwrights, poets and other creative writers. It is a development forum where participants can try out new material and share ideas in a friendly and informal atmosphere, giving and receiving helpful feedback.  There is a mentor mentee arrangement that enables the more seasoned writers to pass their experiences the others.

Meet the (AHW) MEMBERS
