This has been a hugely successful year for the Scarborough Writers’ Circle. Our chair Dorinda Cass has carried on for another year. Lesley Young will carry on in Publicity. We have a new Treasurer in Carol Steel and a new Secretary in Robert Adams.
A huge thanks go to Dorinda for all her work last year, to Julie Fairweather who is stepping down as Treasurer, and Judith Woodroffe for being an excellent host at the Newby/Scalby Library.
Judy Woodroffe won the Arthur Hastings prize, Julie Fairweather won the Leslie Richards prize, Judy Woodroffe won the Nikki Barker prize, and Robert Adams won the Stanley Wilson Cup.
‘Time to Think’ by Robert Adams, ‘Fadings’ by Julie Fairweather and ‘Lines on Facing Sixty’ by Judith Woodroffe were all published in the Friends of Scarborough Library New Reflections Magazine, Autumn/Winter 2018/2019 edition. Carol Steel had ‘Dogs and The Firework Session’ published in the Scarborough RUFC magazine. Dorinda Cass published ‘Greek Island Romance’ in the People’s Friend, 22nd September 2018 edition.
Anne Morley published her book ‘Curiosities from Scarborough’s Children’s Charities’, and Robert Adams published his business book ‘DISCover the Power of You’.
We will be resuming our monthly meetings from Tuesday, 15th January 2018 at 7.15pm, Newby/Scalby Library. Why not come along and try us out! It’s fun, supportive and extremely helpful to anyone looking to progress their writing.
Merry Christmas to you all.
