Welcome to the new Writer’s Club created for Connect International members who love writing in English, anything from poetry and plays to blogs, short stories and novels.

Are you writing for publication or just for your own pleasure? Your goal doesn’t matter, as long as you are committed to writing and want to share your work with other writers.

Your level of experience doesn’t matter either. All writers are welcome, from absolute beginners to published authors. Please note, however, this club is not offering a writing course. There is no writing teacher involved. We are simply providing a safe, supportive space where every six weeks or so you can discuss your work-in-progress with fellow writers and give and receive constructive feedback.

Does this sound like what you are looking for? Then please send an email to The coordinator of the group will be in touch with you. Or join us at the opening meeting of the Writer’s Club. The registration for the meeting is obligatory.

If you are not a member of Connect International yet, you are welcome to attend one event. If you would like to attend events regularly, a Connect International Membership is required. Membership cost:  € 25 / year per person.


The Dutch government has stated that Corona entry passes are required from 6 November 2021 for indoor sports, artistic and cultural activities. Connect International, as a club organizer has to adhere to this rule. Please have in mind to come prepared with a Corona entry pass and ID to some of our events. (Outdoor amateur sports excluded: our Running Club, Walking Clubs are exempt from this requirement).

If you need to have the validity of your vaccination certificate transferred to the Netherlands, please call +31 (0)30 800 2899 (GGD Utrecht) for an appointment in Groningen. In case you encounter any problems with the code, contact GGD regio Utrecht. They are open daily between 09:00-17:00 and provide information in English. (You can also show your international vaccination certificate to us).

If you need a proof of a Corona test, you can make an appointment by visiting: (there is an option for the website in English) The test is free. Consider the timing of the test as it is only valid for 24 hours. You can find the option in English and you can get tested at a location in the vicinity. You should receive the results within two hours with a code that allows you to upload the results to your Corona Pass.

Currently a face mask is a personal decision at some locations. However a volunteer can require it for an event being hosted in a public place or if the event is held in their own house. We ask that you please respect this. Masks are still required in public transportation. 

Keeping a 1.5m distance is an important rule which we all must adhere to. Please take also into account:
