At the beginning of of 2016 Lorraine Reed was looking to join a writers circle. As she could not find one locally, Lorraine created a Facebook group inviting Writers and Authors to join. Lorraine’s online writers circle “WRITERS IN THE WOOD” currently has 119 members. Since the group began just over a year ago, Lorraine’s writers circle has allowed many Writers and Authors to connect with each other, leading to new friendships and creating a fantastic support network for like minded people. Since the group began Lorraine and many other members have been very pro-avtive within their local community, holding many book signings and Author events with local businesses. The Mayor of Hertfordshire, Mayor of Borehamwood and lots of local county Councillors as well as Borehamwood museum, Borehamwood cinema and local senior citizen care homes have been a great support to Writers In The Wood members.
