Writing Creatively

Writing Creatively - inspiration and style using writerly craft skills.

Join the group waitlist via Beacon Members Portal

Creative writing groups are increasingly popular, encouraging people who are already writing, and wish to improve their writing skills, and those who are keen to get started. We find folk who enjoy writing are friendly, encouraging and interested in each other’s work.

Are you inspired to have a go? Then if you are a member of Trust U3A, you are invited to sign up for a Creative Writing Taster session. Once you have signed up for the Creative Writing Taster session, you will receive an email which contains a ‘prompt’.

Be prepared to open up your creative mind - and write a piece inspired by the prompt - just a page or two in length. If you wish, you can email your piece to the group leader ahead of the meeting.

During our meetings, we shall take a look at some of the craft skills that can improve our writing and make the pages come alive. And we’ll enjoy prompts and exercises along the way.

The Creative Writing group meets fortnightly on Thursdays from 3 until 4:15pm.

Please address any queries to the Groups Co-Ordinator and quote Writing in your message.
