About us


The origins of the Marlow Writers’ Society go back to 2012, when a local published poet Liz Everett led a group of aspiring writers in Marlow Library. She would bring a poem and illustration to share and then the group would compose their own interpretations for the next meeting. However, numbers dwindled and then the pandemic came along. Three members: Mary Saunders, Jenny Simnett and Jonathan Slack decided to relaunch the group in the Autumn of 2021 with a poster and social media campaign. This resulted in attracting several new and very talented creative writers including some already published authors.


Our meetings are lively and fun as we share our work to inspire and support each other to improve. One of our members Bill Dunn suggested publishing a magazine, which we did. He called it SLACK. We have also published the Marlow Poets’ Book and a new special flash fiction book called Flack. Please see our publications page.


Our Steering Committee comprises: Jonathan Slack as Chair and Treasurer, Manolita Foster as Secretary, Dave Part and Cecelia Sadek.
