THIS month Chairman Joy Ridgewell welcomed a visitor Gary Wade. At the TWC meeting our very entertaining speaker was Peter Jones. Peter has written several books beginning as a self-publisher he has also had books published by Harper Collins but has now set up his own publishing company. Peter was very helpful with advising the best ways go about getting work published, when questions were put to him.
His Book ‘How to Have Everything and be Happy’ was given a good reception and also several others he brought to show the TWC members, he has written two books with Della Galton who also writes for the Writer’s Forum magazine. One that captured interest was ‘How to Eat Loads and Stay Slim.’
The members enjoyed his enthusiasm and hopefully were inspired to make the effort to get their work acknowledged everyone works hard to give of their best.
The preparation for the anthology is underway to be presented at the Thurrock Writer’s Festival in June.
Congratulations to Vice Chairman Cindy Barber and her husband on the birth of their second son Daniel.
A collection was made for a donation by the TWC in support of the run for the Motor Neurone Disease Charity by the late TAC Chairman John Scowen’s daughter Sarah.
Members read out their work and several pieces are to be considered for the anthology.
