Lemon Tree Writers are an enthusiastic group of poets, storywriters, novelists and playwrights mainly based in Aberdeen and surrounding areas; though their origins are from far and wide. They meet fortnightly to discuss their writing and share their work. New members, be they beginners or published, are made very welcome.

Following the recent closure of the Belmont Cinema, Aberdeen, our home since 2014, we have moved. Meetings now take place in the Conference Room at the Central Library, Aberdeen between 11am and 1pm on the dates shown below.

Meetings are usually hybrid in form, allowing those attending our meeting room in person to join with members taking part online via Zoom. Please note that our AGM meeting on 19 November will be Zoom only.
