About Us

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Prime Writers is a diverse group of talented writers who have one thing in common:  every one of us published our first book when we were over the age of 40.

Our group numbers more than 60, from all regions of the UK, and includes literary writers, writers of memoir, thrillers, romances, children’s fiction, historical fiction… you name it. We’ve been shortlisted for prizes, selected for book clubs, appeared at festivals and events. We draw on a vast reservoir of life experience to inform our writing and help and support each other in our publishing adventures. We were (in many cases, still are) teachers, scientists, doctors, lawyers, journalists, parents, carers – but we come together to celebrate, not only our achievements as writers, but the lives we led to achieve that dream.

So, whether you’re looking for your next read, assembling a panel for an event, or simply seeking inspiration for your own aspirations, The Prime Writers is your gateway to a wealth of talent and expertise.  Browse the list of writers, discover the many ways of working with us, or keep up with news from a favourite writer.  We want to hear from you too, so do feel free to comment on posts or email us at theprimewriters@gmail.com. You can also find us on Twitter @ThePrimeWriters

One thought on “About Us

  1. Excellent! I love this.

    I’ve been a video games writer for about fifteen years but now, at the age of 57, I have a novel with my agent who’s trying to find a publisher. Perhaps I will soon (hopefully) join your ranks.
