SCPSW was founded in 1935.
Some illustrious members of the Civil and Public Services have been members and officers of the Society. But the most important are the members who write, who wish to write, so offering their work to the eyes of others. The curious drive to put finger, stylus, steel pen, fountain pen, Biro, pencil, typewriter keyboard, computer keyboard and voice recognition word processing to paper has driven us from cave and rock face to desktop over tens of thousands of years. This, to take from our minds something tangible so that other minds can be touched. Our society brings an opportunity for the writer to find the reader.
Our aim is to encourage writing for pleasure and occasional profit.
