Our project began as a series of informal drinks that aimed to foster a sense of community for writers. As writers ourselves, we realised that it can be a difficult industry to break into and, particularly for freelancers, isolating. We wanted to help writers meet each other and to tackle issues that we found so many people were struggling with.
