You have reached the online home of the South African Writers' Circle
There are numerous benefits in belonging to the SAWC.
Members receive a 16-page newsletter every month containing information on the general writing scene, markets and national and international competitions, book reviews and articles on writing techniques.
The SAWC is the only association in South Africa which runs monthly competitions covering the whole spectrum of writing: novels, short stories, articles, poetry, plays, humour, children’s stories and science fiction. Professional writers judge these competitions and each entrant receives a full critique on work submitted, whether they are prizewinners or not. Copies of the prizewinning entries are published in the monthly newsletter.
A monthly meeting is held in Westville, each one with a guest speaker, discussing various aspects of writing, or holding workshops.
