Creative Writing on Zoom
During this dreadful Coronavirus pandemic the Creative Writing Group is still 'meeting'!! Yes, we have managed to set up a group on Zoom and we are reading poems and stories and having a laugh every Wednesday afternoon at 2pm. So if anyone would like to join us, please send me a message (firstname.lastname@example.org) or via the Bluebird link if it is still working, and I can give you the Meeting ID and Password to join us. You will need to enable the camera on your computer/iPad or phone (if you want to be seen!) to do this, and download the Zoom App.
You will be very welcome.
|Meeting:||2nd Wednesday morning of the month.|
|Venue:||Melrose Room, St. Cuthbert's Church Centre.|
|Group Leader:||Gael Hughes-Jones|
New members are very welcome. If you wish to join the Group, please do so via the Bluebird link at the top of the page including a telephone number for security purposes. Previous writing experience is not necessary. The best way to learn and improve is to listen to other writers in the Group but support can be given if required. Everyone has their own style.
At each class the members read their homework to the group (we're a friendly lot!), then we have a break and write for about 20 minutes on a set topic. If we have time we have a general chat on a writing topic of interest. Finally the next exercise for homework is chosen.
Remember you can write a story, prose-piece or poem, fact or fiction. Pieces of writing shouldn't be too long so that we have time to hear everybody's efforts.
Set on Wednesday 11 March 2020 - Please see ‘Homework’ link page.
I have introduced a new feature for 'Homeworks' to give all members some input. We now have a Homework Suggestions Box, so if you could each think of a topic we could write about for Homework, it will be put in the box and one retrieved at random each month.
Group Leader: Gael Hughes-Jones.
