Writing for Pleasure
Impact of Coronavirus - please note this group is unable to meet face to face until further notice. However I am still co-ordinating the group, communicating by email and telephone if necessary. The monthly topic, or strap line, if you like is emailed to each of the group members early in the current month. They then forward to me their piece by the last Thursday of the month. I enter each piece received onto our page of the SDU3A website. Please check the SDU3A website regularly for updates. Thank you. Pat Atkinson
STOP PRESS: Our homework topic for MAY is: UNEXPECTED I hope you enjoy reading our stories.
Meets: Thursdays, 1.30pm-3.30pm, last Thursday of the month
Venue: The Echo Centre (Emmanuel Church Hall), Saltburn
Group Leader: Pat Atkinson

Members take turns in suggesting what we shall write about. We take that idea away with us and prepare a story or poem (factual or fictional or a combination of both) to read at the next meeting. We don’t teach. We don’t criticise. This form of creative expression is a self-learning experience and the quality of the work produced on many occasions would be worthy of publication or competition entry. Why not join us, flex your writing muscle and you might be pleasantly surprised with your latent talent. Nothing ventured, nothing gained as the saying goes.
During tea break we take up our pens and write what we call ‘15 minute scribble’ on a subject announced as the kettle goes on.
From each meeting a piece of writing is chosen at random to be entered on our page of Saltburn District U3A web site. The stories typed directly onto our page open quickly, however, some are copied from email and take an extra moment to open. Please take time to read them and any comments can be emailed to me via the message button.
