Creative Writing Sessions on Mondays

Would you like to join a small writing group which meets each Monday from 10.00am - 12.00 noon in the centre of Newcastle? They would welcome some new members to the group who might like to try their hands at writing either poetry or prose. Equally, if someone is half-way through writing their novel or anthology of poems, they too would be welcome. Group members are manly of retirement age, but there is no particular upper or lower age limit. A tutor comes fortnightly to bring a little inspiration and valued comments on members’ work, if they wish to share it with the group. Members give £3 each week into a kitty, which covers expenses.

If you would like to find out more, please email Mary on  [email protected] .
