Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month from 10:30am at the Commodore Hotel.  The first meeting for 2022 is scheduled for Tuesday 11th January. The list of topics for the coming months will be finalised shortly.

There are no hard and fast rules.  Members can write to the chosen topic or not if wished, and this can be prose, poetry, doggerel or any other writing medium.

Examples of recent monthly topics include “The End of the Pier”, “Hidden Away”, “The Customer is Always Right”, “The Key”, and “Grumpy Old Men (or Women). 

During the past the group has created a radio play, a pantomime, two sequential stories and in conjunction with the Art Group produced an anthology of work over the last five years. Copies of the anthology “The Art of Creative Writing” are still available at a cost of £5 (plus £2 P&P if necessary) obtainable by contacting Kathie Richards-Jones. NB all profits are going to the Welsh Air Ambulance.

Here is a recent example of our writing: “A Conspiracy” by Patrick Derwent.
