Frome Writers’ Collective (FWC) is a not-for-profit initiative for writers.

We aim to provide a supportive network for local writers of all genres and at all stages of their writing journey by:

  • sharing information about writing, publishing and literary events
  • supporting each others’ work
  • helping members to find writing groups
  • organising literary activities and events
  • maintaining our imprint (Silver Crow Books)
  • liaising with other individuals and organisations to promote writing.


The work of the Collective is carried out by the following groups:

  • a Steering Group of nine trustees 
  • the Silver Crow Books’ Group
  • the Frome Small Publishers’ Fair Group
  • the Writers on Radio Group
  • the Website and Social Media Group
  • the Frome Festival Literary Events Group
  • the Market Group
