Literature and Drama
There are five book circles each meeting once a month.
This group complete short exercises as a session or homework to develop character, create dialogue, ideas for plot, or focus on memory as a basis for autobiography and fiction.
This group has been set up for members who have already started writing their own life stories and/or their family history. Our aim is to offer support and encouragement so that members feel able to move forward with confidence and complete their individual projects.
We meet to read a variety of plays together, from Shakespeare to modern. No acting talent is required.
The purpose of the group is simply to enjoy reading poetry (one or two members sometimes write their own) with comments perhaps, but no serious analysis.
A self-help group for anyone interested in learning more about the craft of writing poetry. Suitable for beginners and more experienced writers wishing to improve their knowledge and skills.
