Reading and Creative Writing Group at Ecas
Every Thursday, Ecas’ Reading and Creative Writing Group meet in-person and online. Love words, reading and maybe creative writing too? This friendly and relaxed group for people with a physical disability is for you.
Join this group to explore your literary side in the good company of others. Enjoy,
- discussing your favourite book

- exploring new genres
- writing your own stories, poems and more
- meeting our visiting authors
- trips to literary events
This group is here to help you,
- connect with others in a positive and supportive environment
- share your love of the written word
- gain confidence and explore your creative side
Facilitated by writer and experienced Group Leader John Mackay, the direction we take is led by the members of the group as we learn from each other and explore together. We love welcoming new members to our group.
All of our activities cost £2.30 per 2 hour session, new members are able to try an activity for two weeks for free. For those eligible, our grants can help pay activity fees and transport costs.

What Our Clients Say
I’ve always thought literary people were above me. But when we read and talk about them, you discover that they are really quite like us.
My carer suggested I join the reading and writing group. I didn’t hold out much hope… two years on and I am still there. Being part of the group has taught me how to write essays and poems. Its great fun hearing group members read out their written pieces. Outside Ecas, we meet socially and go out for coffees or to the cinema. I am glad to have become a member… I love it.
This group is a fantastic way to come together and talk about things: books, our lives, what’s important to us.
