We have three meetings a month. The general monthly meeting is usually on the second Monday of the month, The Second Circle Poetry Group meeting is on the second Tuesday and the Creative Writers’ Workshops are on the third Monday of the month. Ours is probably the only multinational, multicultural group of writers in Bahrain who come together to share a common interest – writing!

The Monthly Meeting usually features a speaker. In the past we have had members who have shared their publishing experiences, industry professionals, advice with regard to copyright and intellectual property, as well as other experts who have offered their insights into the business and process of writing.

The Second Circle Poetry Group – members share and critique each others’ work. Different aspects of poetry have been studied and appreciated. The group has an annual Colours of Life Festival at which members present and/or perform their poetry in both English and Arabic to audiences in excess of 100.

The Creative Writers’ Workshop – offers workshops in writing wherein we look at the craft of writing, share and critique each others’ work – in a non-threatening manner, and have a monthly writing challenge that is critiqued and reviewed by established writers from around the world. You can read some of our previous years’ stories and writing on our Creative Writers’ blog here.

Please check our Facebook Group/s for any changes in the schedule as well as your email – if you are a member.

The Venue is usually at Umami restaurant at Block 338. Please check out the map to the venue below:

Bahrain Writers' Circle is divided into three distinct groups. The first is the Writer's Circle itself. The second, surprisingly named The Second Circle, is the poetry section. Finally, we have the Creative Writers' Workshop. They meet on different days.

Now we are considering adding a fourth section; The Junior Circle.

We would like your feedback to gauge the interest in forming this group, to encourage young writers and poets. Please use the contact form to let us know your views.
