We meet at Titchfield Court from 1-3 pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Our Co-ordinator, Janet Gibson, gives us a title, sentence or just a word to inspire us to write a piece of around 500 words which we develop at home and then read out to fellow members at the next meeting, for constructive criticism and appraisal. After a short tea-break we then do a ten minute writing exercise.
On March 27th Trevor Wright from Writing East Midlands put on a Workshop to create poems/stories about the past, present and future of life in the Ashfield and Mansfield areas. We did some gentle warm up writing exercises to help people write short pieces about where they have lived. The organisers are working with local groups of all ages to get inter-generational material. There will be a public celebration event in April 21st week as part of the Notts Poetry Festival and anyone who has taken part in the workshops will be able to come along to the event to read their work. The Hucknall event will be at the Station Hotel on Tuesday, 24th April from 6.30-10.0 pm. The next Creative Writing Group will also be on Tuesday, 24th April from 1-3 pm at Titchfield Court, Orchard Street. New members are very welcome to join us, bring pen and paper!
