Sheppey Writers Group

As well as publishing our own collections of short stories we help aspiring writers to publish their own work. Details of what's involved can be found at

Publishing Info

We are happy to help with any aspect of publishing. All you need is your manuscript.

Flash Fiction

Quirky Humans Members of the Sheppey Writers Groups have been writing and publishing for many years, and Flash Fiction is our second collaboration.

As the title suggests, it is a collection of very short stories, none over 500 words

Why not and take a look. You'll find it on this site at

Quirky Humans and Others

Quirky Humans Members of the Sheppey Writers Groups have been writing and publishing for many years, but Quirky Humans And Others is our first collaboration.

It is a collection of stories written by us over the years.

Why not and take a look. You'll find it on this site at

We are a small group of enthusiastic writers who meet to chat and socialise every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at the Napier pub, Sheerness, Kent, UK, starting at 3pm.

For the latest information visit our Facebook page at Sheppey Writer's Group.

As you can see across the page, we have our own publishing house. Since we are both published and self-published authors we have a wealth of information on getting a manuscript from early draft to released book. We say released rather than published, because today it includes other media such as ebooks or audio books. If you would like to discuss your own manuscript then email us at


The Written Word
Like any writers' group we enjoy our short stories and poems. You can find our efforts at at Better still, keep an eye on our Facebook page and come to one of our readings.

We also write books, some published and some self-published and there's a full list at the bottom of this page. Unless marked otherwise, books were published by TAUP UK

This is a new feature currently under testing. Over time, we will add stories and poems for you to enjoy.

Scripts for video, TV or radio are also a part of writing. There are many different modern ways of telling a story or reading out a poem such as audio books,so as a progressive group, we work in all media forms. You can see some of our efforts at:
