I started my creative writing group in 2005. After only one year six of our members had seen their names in print for the first time.
We have improved our writing skills, gained confidence through writing exercises and practice. We have met new people, gone to each other’s birthdays, weddings, and Christmas celebrations. We enjoy regular lunches, have hosted and presented the odd poetry evening, made lasting friendships and had fun. Sometimes we have had visiting speakers and found that they can be a useful source of ideas and information.
- If you run, or take part in a creative writing group and are looking for ideas, look no further: you have arrived at your destination.
- If you would like to start a creative writing group, this site is full of useful advice and ideas, and all of them tried and tested.
- For budding writers looking for ideas and ways to get off the blank page we have a host of suggestions.
As coordinator of the group, whose experience and ideas you are invited to share, I have been a qualified teacher for over twenty years, a one time judge of professional theatre, a lifetime scribbler of both prose and poetry and, most of all, an enthusiastic lover of words, language, stories and poetry. My writing group is the highlight of my week.
