GAW (founded 1978) is an association of LGBT people who are creative writers – poets, dramatists, fiction and non-fiction writers. Our aim is to support writers by providing opportunities for them to meet, to read, to discuss and develop their work. We hold monthly meetings for that purpose at different places in London and the South East. Some meetings are accessible to wheelchair users.
Although London-based, we are a national organisation and welcome members from all over the country. Our quarterly newsletter keeps members in touch. Membership is open to all LGBT writers, beginners as well as published authors.
Our publishing arm, Paradise Press, is run by a collective within GAW.
