Clapham Writers is a Charity (CIO) comprising a Board of Trustees and many associated writers who live and work in or around Clapham in South London.
Some of us are established and well known, others have fewer publications; we include novelists, historians, journalists and poets among our number.

- has a presence at local events, such as the Lambeth Country Show, Clapham Village Fete, the Abbeville Fete, Clapham Lights etc.
We have also produced a FREE quiz and self-guide walk around Clapham called The Clapham Literary Trail which takes about ninety minutes to walk and includes Clapham landmarks and the places where Clapham authors of renown lived and worked. Download it in PDF below.
And for younger Claphamites there is a children’s version, below, for ages 8 – 12 accompanied by an adult.
