Creative Writing for Fun


Activity

Each month we read out our 500-600 word pieces and agree on a title for the following month.  Apart from the word-count there are no rules: fact, fiction, poetry, or whatever the title suggests to you.  As an optional extra we write complete stories in exactly 50 words, on any subject.

Where and when

We meet at 2pm on the last Friday of the month in St Nicholas Church, Little Bowden.

Other information

There are varying degrees of skill within the group, from beginners to the very experienced, and new members are always welcome.
