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.
