This chapter focuses on the writers' groups that have fostered working-class authors. Drawing on material from the archives of the Federation of Working-Class Writers and Community Publishers, and on correspondence and interviews with founding members, it explores the precise reasons for the inception of one of these groups, Scotland Road Writers (Scottie Road), and its ability over two decades to bridge Liverpool's race/class divide.

Keywords:   working-class authors, Scotland Road Writers, Community Publishers, community writing groups
