Our Published Works

port writers publications

What writer doesn’t want to be published?

The thrill and pride of seeing your name in print is a delightful reward and validation of your writing capability.

While most of us would love to write an entire book (or ten), some are satisfied with having their words recognised in a Port Writers’ publication: one of the advantages of joining a writing group.

For readers, a publication from a writers’ group is a way of accessing wonderful works for a very reasonable investment.
