Creative Writing Group

Group leader: Cheryl Davies –

Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month from 10:30am at the Commodore Hotel. Our group is necessarily small (to allow inclusion time at meetings for everyone’s contribution) but due to house moves we do have a couple of current vacancies.

We work to a chosen list of monthly topics, but there are no hard and fast rules. Recent examples include: “The layby”, “Cosmetic Surgery” and “In the Twinkle of an Eye”. Members can work in prose, poetry, doggerel or any other writing medium of their choice. Additionally we use email to enjoy occasional mid-month challenges, which recently included writing a short story with every word beginning with the same letter.

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 Art of Creative Writing” are still available at a cost of £5 (plus £2 post and packing if necessary) with all profits going to Welsh Air Ambulance.

Forthcoming topics include “Letter to a Celebrity” and “The windfall”. If you would like a “taster” please contact the group leader.
