WORKSHOPS (see also ‘Writing Days’ under ‘News’ for recently-arranged workshops in August.)

Writing from Life

Writing from Life groups are:

  • Friendly and supportive rather than competitive
  • We write on the spot so there is no homework but lots of laughter
  • We aim to enjoy our writing and time together
  • To grow in confidence through practice, through listening to and appreciating others’ writing and, in turn, through reading our own work out loud

The Thursday evening group meets at my house in mid-Surrey, 7.45--9.45pm, during the autumn and spring terms only. Dates for this term are
 September 27
October 4, 11, 18 (25th is half-term)
November 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29
December 6 is our last meeting of this term and we’ll start again in January.
The autumn term then has 10 meetings and costs £85. This will be our 19th year but inevitably some people leave and we always welcome new people, while keeping the group size to a maximum of 12.

Special Offer - a taster session, free for those interested in trying out the group without commitment..
Of course we hope they’ll love it and sign up for the term. Two spaces left as from 18th Sept!

What with my husband retiring, our wanting to go places and do things and our grandchild-count going up, something had to give - and it’s been the Wednesday morning Writing from Life group.

Write On

I also lead a Write On group for a limited number of people engaged in ongoing writing projects such as novels.
Each person emails to everyone else an extract of not more than 1500 words from their work in progress a week before we meet,  which is on a week-night evening about every six weeks. Then we all critique, inform, comment, spur on, add ideas - or whatever will help these writers who are in it for the difficult long-haul.

The group is full, currently but if you are interested  email Chris  who will put you on a waiting list
