A new group for aspiring and experienced writers has been set up in Haddenham. We meet twice a month, one weekday evening in the back room of the Rose and Thistle and one Saturday morning at Haddenham Community Library. See below for the dates and times. You don't have to come to all meetings, just the ones you can make.
The current group of about half a dozen people are writing in fiction, autobiography, factual and self-help genres. We know there are more writers out there and we'd love to meet you. Writing is writing, whatever the genre, and there are plenty of crossover themes to talk about in our meetings. Narrative, character, building atmosphere and how to get published are all up for discussion.
The group is still very young and the format of the meetings is still evolving. Everyone will get a chance to bring a piece of writing, or an initial idea for a piece, to read out or pass round and get friendly, constructive feedback on how to improve or ideas for other directions to take. It takes a bit of time to get used to reading out your written work, but we're all in the same boat and want to support each other to get better.
We look forward to getting to know you at one of our meetings!
The next few meetings are:
- Tuesday 18th March, 7.00-9.00pm back room of the Rose and Thistle.
- Saturday 29th March, 10.00am-12.00pm, Haddenham Library.
- Tuesday 15th April, 7.00-9.00pm, back room of the Rose and Thistle.
- Saturday 26th April, 10.00am-12.00pm, Haddenham Library.
