Ormskirk Writers' & Literary Society - OWLS - was established in 1963 by Dora Doyle to promote local writers. Founder member Ron Bartholomew contributed to the Waverly Encyclopaedias and was widely published in Practical Mechanics Magazine. A successful playwright, he opened his house to us for weekly meetings and served us with tea and home made cakes for many years. As Otis lifts Chief Engineer he also designed the press button control boxes used in lifts to this day. ALT="Ormskirk Writers' & Literary Society">

Jo’ Cowell Competition Is Back in 2010

I remember Josephine, these days we call her Jo’
Though it was Mrs Cowell then, so very long ago
We were The Ormskirk Writer’s Club,
Met in a café, shilling sub
So genteel and polite.
‘Twas Mrs A. and Mr. B With courteous formality.
Nowadays days we still meet... When?
Each month’s first and third Monday night
From half past seven until ten,
Please won’t you come and meet us then
In Church house rooms upon the site
Of Ormskirk Church? We’ll help you write.
