Workshops and Special Events

At various times throughout the year, we run workshops and special events with guest speakers/facilitators. These are usually available to everyone, though some may have preferential access for members, depending on numbers.


We are a charity and rely on generous contributions from our members and subscribers, attendees at our events and those who wish us well. If you have enjoyed any of Fife Write's activities, then please help us to continue by donating even the smallest amount. Everything is welcome.

About Us

Fife Writes has been around for many years, though has existed as a charity only since January 2020. On 1st July 2022, The Byre Writers officially joined with Fife Writes creating a much larger group. It is guided by a very small organising team but is always on the lookout for additional people to join and help out with the many tasks that need to be carried out to keep a small charity working.

Its main purpose is to encourage involvement and provide the opportunity to write and perform. It aims to be a peer support group for writers of all genres and to encourage each other to write and share their work. It holds events such as storytelling, short stories, novels, poetry, performance and music across Fife where readers and performers are invited from the very inexperienced to full professionals.

It also holds creative writing workshops, runs a programme of writing support groups and hosts other events to support writers across Fife.
