Writers on the Heath - Haywards Heath Map

Half Way Between London & Brighton


Our base for Writers on the Heath is in the library in Haywards Heath and members range from beginners, students and budding authors right through to musicians, journalists, poets, business owners, public speakers and comedy writers. Even a mainstream publisher sits in.

Formed in early 2015

Writers on the Heath was officially formed in the summer of 2015 by a bunch of friends with similar interests but who all shared the common goal, desire and interest of getting their masterpieces out there: recognised, published or in print.

Helping to Inspire Each Other

We have all learnt from the best but when we first started most of us hadn’t even written anything down, let alone thought about how to get our works to market.
Since then, through regular writing exercises and constructive feedback, many of us have been inspired to self-publish, write flash fiction or create genius comedy scripts achieving this through blogs, podcasts and conventional publishing.



Or if you want to simply come along and experience Writers on the Heath for yourself just come along to Haywards Heath Library on the third Friday of the month at 7.30pm.

When you arrive just come in through the back door off Oaklands Road, Haywards Heath. We look forward to meeting you.
