The Writers’ Cafe was established in 2012, formed from the premise that writers needed a place to meet other writers, away from the distraction of home. Our workshops are quite unique, using ideas from science, myths and legends, divination and urban legends as inspiration for writing prompts.

The Writers’ Cafe Magazine launched on October 31st 2017.

“By the time you finish reading this letter, you will have realized that there is no actual conception of the self. There is no “you” and “I.” There are, however, a bundle of sensations that we experience: that day we met outside my family home in Berwickshire; the way you cried ever so deeply when you found out I was an atheist; how repulsed you looked after you discovered I had scurvy. I love you, and these moments make us who we are. I may put the “Hume” in humor, but this is no joke.”—David Hume
