St Austell

Creative Writers

GROUP CONVENOR - Margaret Knowles

We are a group of people who enjoy writing and we meet on the 3rd Monday of each month (except July and December) in the bar at the St Austell Arts Centre from 2pm until 4 pm.

We read to the group our latest pieces, written since the last meeting. No two pieces are alike; it is their diversity that makes the 2 hours so interesting and provoking comment.

Ten minutes of speed writing follows, inspiration deriving from any object around us. Before we finish we each choose a word at random to create the shortest possible comprehensible sentence. Finally a title for our next essay/ story.

A recent Limerick Writing exercise produced:

"There once was a U3A writer
Who dreamed that the world would be brighter
So he beavered away
at his keyboard all day
and sometimes he did an all-nighter"

We are happy for you to come to a Coffee Morning or one main Monthly meeting and to attend one individual group event before deciding whether to join St Austell U3A.
