We meet from 1-3.00 pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Our venue is the Liberal Club on West Street. 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 October meeting was “pick a proverb of your own choice and write about it”. We also had a brief attempt at “Found Poetry” Found poetry is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources such as information leaflets, newspapers, magazines, books etc and reframing them as poetry (a literary equivalent of a collage by making changes in spacing and lines, or by adding or deleting text, thus imparting new meaning).
New members are very welcome to join us on Group sessions, just bring pen and paper! The next meeting will be on Tuesday, 27th November.
