    Welcome to Writer's Guild, where we do “all the write things”. A small and humble CCA of twelve members, Writer’s Guild is a very young CCA that started based off an interest group, only becoming a legitimate CCA in 2014. Nevertheless, we are no less busy than other larger CCAs with the things that we do.

    With weekly sessions on Monday (4.30 – 6pm), our members meet up to discuss recent pieces written, giving each other peer critique on things such as style, form, language… the list goes on and on.

    At the end of it all, our pieces are showcased in our very own Guild website, where new pieces are uploaded on a regular basis.

    Through it all, Writer’s Guild remains a small, dedicated yet easygoing CCA whose members bond through a similar love for writing. If you have a passion for writing, do consider joining the Guild family – Writer’s Guild welcomes you.
