Cwrtnewydd Scribblers are a group of women from a small farming community in West Wales. We meet weekly to share inspiration and hone our skills. As a group we produce an eclectic mix of literature including poetry, short stories, romance and historical novels.

Wendy Steele lives on a hillside in Wales. She can see the mountains from a place on her land where one day, she'll build a straw bale writing room. In 2012 she published her first non-fiction title ' Wendy Woo's Year - A Pocketful of Smiles', as well as two short story anthologies and an erotic accompaniment to the Lilith Trilogy 'Too Hot for Angels'.
Kate Murray has been only writing since 2010 when her Aunt brought her a leather bound journal for Christmas. Nothing unusual about that, but she didn't write, in fact she'd only tried to keep a diary for one year. She had done it but it had been a chore. So she started 2011 by enrolling on to a local writing course. It was free and she thought why not, after all she was always telling people stories. That's where she differs, you see she is dyslexic and has been actively steered away from writing. Don't get me wrong, her parents are really supportive and now she's at university studying an MA in creative writing she has a mass of support. But that first step into the writing group was terrifying. She's now studying at the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David and thoroughly enjoying it.
