Appearing among a number of national celebrities at this month's Thame Arts and Literature Festival, the Writers Group from Haddenham U3A will be showcasing examples of their creative writing work.
Their presentation, on Friday 19th October, will give an audience the opportunity to enjoy an hour or so of readings from their work across a wide variety of styles and genres. It offers a chance to learn more about creative writing and the work of such groups.
This local U3A group meets monthly, discussing and writing poetry, short plays, short stories and longer pieces. The group provides a forum for the practice and discussion of many forms of writing — novels, poetry, plays, biographies, memoirs and fictional topics. Members are helped to find their own distinctive voice and genre. Exercises are set to highlight different aspects of writing — characterisation, creativity, dialogue, mood etc.
The group operates in an informal manner to make writing a fun process. U3A members are welcome to join this or any other interest group
Their Thame Arts and Literature Festival presentation is at 3.30 pm in Christchurch, Upper High Street, Thame.
Entrance is free, but tickets can be obtained from the TALF box office at Thame Town Hall, online here: talfestival.org or on the door.
