May’s Circle Session

The May meeting of the Scarborough Writers’ Circle were delighted to welcome two new members to our ever-expanding group of wordsmiths. This month’s session was on writing practice and developing our craft. Drawing on found examples of both dull and exciting texts, the group had a useful discussion about words which add energy pace and excitement to written words.

Our next meeting will be at Newby and Scalby Library and Information Centre on 14th June at 7:15 where the winner of the 2022 Nikki Barker writing competition will be announced and the trophy awarded.  Story entries to the competition will be read by their authors, which is always a joy.

£4.00 for non-members – but membership is open and we very much look forward to welcoming new members and non-members alike. For more information and our year timetable see our Diary section.

Our President, Bill Kitson, reminds everyone of John Cooper’s important evening.

Dear All,

On May 13th, John Cooper is leading a session encouraging members to analyse the mechanics of narrative writing. I believe this is an essential weapon in a writer’s armoury. The importance of the ability to write coherently is crucial. As language changes, the requirements for writers also change, so we are in effect, always learning.I think this is a session from which all members, even the most successful and experienced can benefit.
Regards
Bill
