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.
In November our homework for January was to choose a photo from a group of “faces” depicted and write about what the photo told us. It was surprising how different the stories were. Members had also contributed their personal Christmas anecdotes for a booklet the Group had produced for the December Showcase meeting. We had also entered a Christmas Tree on behalf of the U3A for the Church Tree Competition. This was entitled “Create the ‘write’ words for Christmas” and included fans made from U3A publicity leaflets with pens hanging from them, accompanied by “words for Christmas” hanging from the branches. We did our best!
New members are very welcome to join us on Group sessions, just bring pen and paper!
There is no meeting in December but the January meeting will be on Tuesday, 22nd January, 2019.
