The Scribes of Unixploria


If you love to read, you can learn to write; if you love to write, you have come to the right place.

Most people use the language daily without contemplating what they've done. The Scribes of Unixploria is a society of writers that offers you a space to continue manoeuvring your language choices and understand why you make them.

By writing fiction, poetry, scripts, plays, and nonfiction, you can explore how to manipulate language in a meaningful way - alongside people who share your passion.

The Society advises beginners and professional writers, and we do not discriminate against linguistic barriers. The common language in our group is English, but we have members from a wide range of linguistic and cultural backgrounds.  

We meet regularly to discuss themes, practices, and plots and argue about the meaning of words, character controversy, and the balance of genres and free-formed thoughts. Whether perfecting your magnum opus or looking for some light-hearted fun, our meetings offer something for everyone. 



Verba volant, scripta manent is a Latin proverb. Translated, it means "spoken words fly away, written words remain."

This proverb originates from a speech of senator Caius Titus to the Roman Senate. The general meaning is that spoken words might easily be forgotten, while written documents can always be relied on for conclusive proof.

The Scribes of Unixploria have taken this proverb to heart and consider the printed word superior to oral statements. We believe the printed word has proven its value and endured the test of time.
