We are a friendly, informal, non-judgemental, encouraging group, and started up three years’ ago. We run on similar lines to the other Writing Groups, and meet round each other’s homes more or less every three weeks on dates convenient to our members. We decide on a written assignment before each meeting, email it to our group the day before we meet up, and then comment on each other’s work on the Friday. If a member prefers to write about something completely different that is fine with us.
We are quite adventurous and like to challenge ourselves with different styles of writing and genres and develop our abilities in this way. For instance with Poetry we have enjoyed experimenting with Sonnets, Haikus and Villanelles.
We try to make time during our meetings for some unscripted spontaneous writing which is always fun! Our main aim as a group is to enjoy our writing.
We start each session with tea/coffee and biscuits.
