About Visible Ink


Visible Ink is a friendly and informal writers’ group based in Edinburgh. We’ve been running for over 15 years and welcome all writers, whether you’re just starting out or an old hand, whether you write for fun or for publication, whatever you write: fact or fiction, long or short, poetry or prose, song or drama.

Our members range from published authors to first-time writers, and from students to pensioners. We're friendly and constructive, and happy to hear new writing from anyone who chooses to share it.

A typical evening at Visible Ink will see members bringing in pieces they're working on to read aloud, and to receive constructive feedback from the rest of the group. We're equally happy to hear pieces in very early stages of construction as well as finished work. There's no pressure to share your work if you don't want to, nor will you be pressured to give feedback to other readers if you don't feel comfortable doing so.

There's all sorts of styles and genres at Visible Ink . Recent sessions have included Science Fiction, abstract poetry, journalism, polical comedy, theatrical play scripts, ghost stories, romance, historical fiction and urban fantasy, as well as many others.

Join us


There's no membership, and no need to book in advance. Just come along next Tuesday - we'd love to meet you.



How to find us


We meet every Tuesday, at Tollcross Community Centre, 117 Fountainbridge, EH3 9QG.

The evening starts at 6:45pm, and finishes at 8:45pm. Many of us find time for a quick drink afterwards as well - you're welcome to join us for that as well, if you'd like.

You don't have to attend every week if you don't want to. It's a drop-in session, so you can skip a week whenever you like. Nobody's checking up on you.
