Description

Explore your literary horizons.

Our monthly Online Book Group for Writers is a place for bookworms and the book-curious in a curated online environment.

Set over six months, with a syllabus of both modern and classic texts, you’ll explore the author and their work via lively mini lectures, group discussion and debate.

Book Group is the perfect platform for avid readers to articulate your taste, broaden your horizons, and discover new ideas.
