There is a vacancy for a new member in this group
This small group was launched in 2012. Its members engage in writing about their memories of previous life experiences. The topics covered are many and varied. Memories might be from childhood or from earlier life events during adulthood. Members agree what they will write about in group meetings, sometimes covering a common topic and sometimes one that is distinctive to their own experience.
After each meeting, members go away and write their own compositions. In subsequent meetings, there are opportunities for members to read from their writings and discuss with other members exchanging opinions and help.
Collections of these writings have been gathered together into bound collections from time to time either by the group collectively or by specific members. The one factor that binds the members together is their love of writing.
The group meets once a month usually on a Wednesday from 10.00 am to 12.00 noon in the group leader's home in Loughton. It is led by Beverley Swift and her contact details can be found in the Epping Forest U3A Prospectus.
Although membership is limited (and current closed), the group leader is happy to hear from anyone who might be interested in joining. Spaces emerge from time to time and those on the waiting list will have first options to join.
If there is a lot of demand for this type of group, Beverly is happy to provide advice to anyone interested in established a second Memoir Writing group.
