Hornsea Writers Goes Live!

Twenty-five years ago, Hornsea Writers was born, conceived out of unchannelled creativity, raw talent and a burning desire to write. Some of its founders were already published, some inexperienced, others literary wannabes. Yet it came together and grew strong.

Over the years, this group of professional writers has enjoyed unparalleled success in virtually every genre, including Crime, Thrillers, Alternative History, Romance, Supernatural, Fantasy, Humour, Horror, SF, Western, Teenage, and Creative Non-fiction. 

Hornsea Writers has produced novels, how-to books, short stories, stage plays, radio plays and stories for broadcast, along with newspaper and magazine articles on everything from family matters to travel.

As well as numerous writing-contest successes, members have also collected international prizes: the CWA Debut Dagger, a nomination for the John Creasey Dagger, the RNA New Writers’ Award, the BBC Radio 4 Northern Writers’ Groups short story competitions, and the Radio Times Drama Award.

Twenty-five years on, the group’s purpose remains the same: mutual support, with constructive feed-back and exchange of information. And now it has a collective showcase. Be our guest and browse.
