Philology is the study of words and language. We all contribute towards chosen topics and discuss matters arising from our selections. No specialism is required—just the ability to draw upon your own spoken language to provide examples. Having just lost several members we have room for more to join the group and will return to the Wolseley Trust Room if enough people join.

At each monthly meeting a title/theme/topic is agreed for the next session, when we each read out our prepared piece and get feedback (honest and constructive). We are not a taught group – so no lessons on how to write. A major part of the interest in the group is hearing how others have interpreted an idea, because of this format, our writings tend to be fairly short pieces, so that everyone gets to be heard; “part-works” are possible too, but it is not the place to try out your autobiography or the next novel!
