We meet from 1-3 pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Our venue is the Liberal Club on West Street. Unfortunately our Co-ordinator, Janet Gibson, wishes to take a well-earned break and we take the opportunity to thank her for all her patience with us and for opening up new ideas on Creative Writing.
We hope to continue with a programme she has suggested for us for the foreseeable future. Members are given 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 or something similar.
Our “homework” which we discussed at the September meeting was related to one of the following subjects: “All that glisters is not gold”, “Youth is wasted on the young” or “The customer is always right”. Our “homework” for discussion in October is “pick a proverb of your own choice and write about it”.
New members are very welcome to join us on Group sessions, just bring pen and paper!
