Creative Writing

Due to the Coronavirus Creative Writing Group meetings have been CANCELLED until it is safe to meet again.

However, while the group cannot meet together the short story competition detailed below is still taking place with the stories being published under pseudonyms in two newsletters that are being sent to members during the shutdown. They are also available to read by clicking the links on the right.

"Everyone Has A Story To Tell"
The Creative Writing Group offer all Hinckley U3A members the opportunity to enter The Hinckley U3A Short Story Competition.

Suddenly we all have extra time, and apparently we all have a book in us just waiting to be written.
Why not have a go at our short story competition, maximum 500 words, open to all Hinckley U3A members.
The subject is "Secrets" or "Secret" written under a pseudonym, typed and emailed to John by 30th June.
You may submit multiple entries under different pseudonyms.

The Competition will be judged by members of our U3A, hopefully volunteers from our reading group. The winner will receive a bottle of fine wine.

Also, during the shutdown Samantha Ridgeway will be writing a series of lighthearted fictional letters between Neighbours Elizabeth & Margery click on the links on the right to read them.
