Weegie Wednesday began in January 2007 in Glasgow to provide an opportunity for writers, publishers, comic book writers and artists, poets, screen writers, drama writers, booksellers, librarians, TV and film people, journalists, marketing people, creative writing students and anyone else with an interest to get together socially once a month to talk about books, writing and publishing and all points related.
We host monthly events to; Develop networking relationships; Highlight business opportunities; Encourage idea sharing for writers and those interested in the process of writing and related fields; Host short talks at the events from key, relevant speakers about their area of expertise, and to give information, their story or share their inspiration.
The spirit of Weegie Wednesday is to promote networking, welcome new people, and get people meeting. Our steering committee do their best to introduce new people, but the best thing to do is introduce yourself to people and not be shy. We try never to have cliques and to be friendly and welcoming. There is a real mix of people who attend – long term members and new people. Some drop in twice or once a year, and some come every month – we are always happy to welcome anyone with an interest in writing and the creative industries.
