Each meeting is a mixture of reading out what we have written, writing more, and activities to encourage us to try new ideas and ways of expressing ourselves. We use pictures, objects, single words, enigmatic sentences and games to stimulate ideas. Everyone's ideas are welcome, we all write together.
Whether it is reminiscence, fiction founded on experience, a flight of imagination, an idea for a story or a poem - we all have a life-time of stuff ready to flow onto paper! Come and pick up a pen and you will be amazed at what you can do. Don't think, "I won't know what to write about". You will be given prompts, titles and ideas to send you on your way.
The way we work involves a lot of short spurts of writing, and the chance to do a longer piece at home. Keeps the brain really active!
Not ready to pick up the pen? Come and listen. Catch the writing bug!
NEW MEMBERS WELCOME.... particularly beginners at writing
If you are an experienced or even published writer you are very welcome. There is perhaps a need for a Writers Group where members can discuss their writing in progress. Would anyone like to start one?
THE GROUP MEETS ON the first and third WEDNESDAY of the month : at 2.00 At the moment some of us are meeting on Zoom when we read our work (usually about 500 words) and give feedback, which is always positive and encouraging. Others are joining by sharing their work by email.
Next meeting 5th August 2020
Not everyone is able to come to each meeting. That is OK. Everything you write for the Group will be heard and as there is no long term programme you cannot 'get behind'.
Please come even if you have written nothing....ever. Or bring the last home task whatever that was.
New members: just bring yourself .You can visit the group once before deciding to join U3A, but please contact us first.
