Writing Group

4th Tuesday of month 7.30pm.

We meet either at the Meeting House or on line via Zoom to write on topics that help us understand ourselves and reflect on our lives. It is frequently hilarious! This is not a creative writing group as such. We write for 20-25 minutes on a topic that has been agreed by the group in advance, then share the work by reading it out.
