Creative Writing

At BRMC - Meeting Room, WR2 5DL on Friday at 1400hr - until we're clear of Coronavirus we'll be running our meetings on Zoom - the group is already to capacity for 2020/2021 so be sure to email and ask for a place next time.

Leader and Contact: Polly Stretton

The Creative Writing Group is a relaxed and friendly group, a mix of new and experienced writers, some with published work, some still aiming for publication, who are keen to help and be helped by others interested in writing.

This is not a 'teaching' group, although we do have workshops on specific writing-related topics. New and established writers benefit from constructive feedback and friendly advice from the group.

Twice a year, we have a talk or presentation by a recognised local writer, for which there is a small additional cost dependent on our membership numbers, usually £10 payable at the first session.

A typical meeting starts with 'homework' being read aloud, usually around 750—1000 words, or a poem of up to 40 lines on a subject (prompt) set at the previous meeting. Time allowing, group members offer a friendly critique of the work. There follows a discussion on matters arising. We break for tea and a fifteen-minute chat, then a half hour session on a writerley topic, for example: plot; characterisation; form in poetry; setting; developing ideas, the prompt is often selected by the group.

We offer flexibility with the homework to cater for those who have ongoing projects and would like feedback on specific work, if this is the case, the feedback is on the work presented. The meeting ends with a writing exercise, set on the day.

Inspired to give your creative writing abilities a go? Prose writers and poets all welcome.

Best selling author, Jodi Picoult, remarks "Everyone has a book inside them—but it doesn't do any good until you pry it out." Let's work together to show that story to the world, you'll enjoy the process and others will enjoy the read!
