AWAKE

Writing for Fun 1 & 2

Following the two successful publications of our work, we have had a busy few months of writing.

Both Groups continue to meet on a monthly basis. Although the main purpose is to read our compositions, we enjoy lively chat and banter, with the essential tea, coffee and biscuits. If you are interested in joining us, or if you would like further information about either Group, please contact Liz Parker on 653 550 or Brenda Skern on 564 127.

Writing for Fun Group 1

We have once more published a booklet of our collective pieces and they are the ideal present for your nearest and dearest (or even those you don’t like) and available at the bargain price of £2 per copy. We’ve worked hard on this, our third publication, and we hope it proves as popular as the last two editions.
Copies will be available at the monthly meetings or by contacting any members of the group or committee.
Look for the shiny blue cover and settle down for a cracking good read.
Any comments about the book are welcome, compliments to me and criticisms to the chair. (Not Chris Watson, that chair over there!)

Anyone can write and it’s great fun to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard), so come and join us.

“Talkin’ ‘bout my Generation Teenage memories of the twentieth century!

Now it’s your turn. What was your life like when you were 13 – 14?
If you would like to share your memories with us (either anonymously or otherwise) we could produce our own AWAKE U3A booklet of teenage memories of the twentieth century. Click my Generation for more information!

Some months ago I asked members if they would like to/ be willing to share their teenage experiences for our own review of life mid-century.I have received a handful of valuable contributions from the 1940s, 1950s and early 1960s. I am sure there are more stories out there! A number of people have said they are not used to writing and wouldn’t know where to start. Strongest memories are a good prompt which can link to things you think you have forgotten but if you’d rather talk to somebody that can also be arranged.

The email address remains the same by clicking my Generation
