The group facilitator is Anne Mc Cusker
The group meets on the third Tuesday of each month, 12 noon - 1.30 p.m.
This group began with just four members but has grown to eight enthusiasts who come together once a month to read their own work to the group and get feedback from each other. Most have been accustomed to a different kind of writing in their working lives – Reports, Business Letters, Lesson Plans, Magazine Contributions and more factual types of compositions. In the group there is a chance to write memoir, fiction, poetry, sketches and historical articles. The format of each meeting is flexible to accommodate the members in that one meeting might consist entirely of listening to each other’s writing and another session might be spent doing creative exercises inspired by prompts such as the first line of a story or an incomplete line like ‘I have often thought….’
The aim is to give scope to members to record their own experiences, to create interesting characters, to write from memory, to develop their imaginations, to share their creativity with others and get some satisfaction from this.
This is not a highly structured, academic activity but is designed to provide enjoyment in creating a piece of writing and sharing it with like minded souls who are good listeners and supportive critics.
If you feel that you have a story to tell, do come along and share it with us.
