Thurrock Writers Circle: Monthly report

By Joy Ridgewell

THERE was a festive air to the TWC evening out this month, members all agreed they had a good evening out at The Dog & Partridge in North Stifford. There was a good variety of food to choose from service was quick and everyone enjoyed it.

Tina Thompson is looking to find a venue for a Writing Weekend later this year, unfortunately our venue at Ipswich that we have enjoyed for the past three years owing to cuts is no longer available.

Preparations are being prepared for the Writers Festival that will be held at Grays Library on May 18th 2013 details of short story and poetry competitions from Grays Library.

Prizes to be arranged from Waterstones.

Cindy Barber showed members how to put a short story together by reading out a story in separate ways this was a good exercise, after writing a similar short piece we then read them out and discussed the points being made.

There have been inquiries about our meetings if anyone would like to come along and see how we work they would be welcome.

Next Meetings: 6th – 20th March at The Hugh Delargy Close Hall Chadwell St Mary Grays 7-30pm-9-30pm.
