Writing for Pleasure
STOP PRESS: Due to heat and health and holidays I have been unable to enter any new stories until today. Therefore two new stories are showcased from our July meeting. These two new stories are from the suggestion Pauline Bennett gave us entitled Twelfth Night. Myself (Pat) and Roger Elgood submitted our work. David Murray continues to write each month's suggestion into a longer story, which we very much enjoy listening to during the group session. I hope after the 'silly season' ends we will have more submissions each month for you to enjoy.
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.
