On 1 February, 30 members attended to read out their stories for our first competition of 2016, for which there were 21 varied entries. Our prompt was taken from this year’s National Association of Writers’ Group’s ‘given phrase’ category: “and then the whispering started”. And plenty of intriguing whispering there was: whispering in woods, in a strange room in a château and on an aeroplane. The whisperers included fairies, a voice in someone’s head and a long-dead school friend.
We look forward to the judge’s results on 29th February, when successful local writer, Alexandra Benedict, will be visiting to give her feedback.
On 15th February, we were delighted to welcome successful writer and Creative Writing tutor, Jacqs Molloy, to the group. She gave a lively, useful and inspiring workshop on script writing. It was a really enjoyable evening and huge thanks to Jacqs for so generously sharing her ideas and experience.
