Writing Group

Thursday, 03 March, 2005

Oh yes, forgot to blog about this. Writing Group was on Saturday. In total there were 8 of us and half of them were first-timers. We did a writing exercise (write about what you did yesterday from the third person in the genre of romance, detective or high fantasy; read Haoran's attempt). Ben got us thinking about the topic of suicide and the Bible. I did a session on interviewing (and it was helpful having a real journalist there!) and after lunch we did workshopping. I was impressed with what our group members were coming up with in the creative stakes. I hope they keep coming back.

Next meeting is Saturday 14th May. Let us know if you're interested and you can make it.

It was great Karen. If possible I’d definitely be back. Trying to convince a few of the others from church.

That would be great, Paul! I’m glad it was useful to you. Any feedback on how it was run would also be appreciated—we’d like to improve (yes, and I should probably go and buy tea and coffee and real milk next time too ...)
