Amatörskrivande i en skrivarklubb

Abstract [en]

This master thesis is about amateur writing. To understand the writers needs and wishes about writing and access to information I have researched writing in a writing group. To answer my questions I have studied research literature and interviewed six of the members of the writing group. I also participated in their meetings for two years. The result of this study shows that writing had a therapeutic function for all of them in a period of their lives. The genre for this writing was mostly poetry and diary writing. To meet with other writers was the main reason for participating in the writing group. Furthermore, I have interviewed librarians in some libraries that have initiated writing activities. Most of the libraries focused on youths and even if it was the libraries that initiated the courses, they always involved a teacher experienced in writing. It seems that it was not a very high expense for the libraries to start writing courses.
