A two-part morning: Al Watt gave a very thorough talk on how to set about entering writing competitions and submitting work for publication across all kinds of media. Al’s detailed handout will be a valuable resource for members who want to see their work in print.
After coffee was Read Your Own Work. The result was an amazing creative medley ranging from the profound to the lighthearted. Contributors included newbie Ann Devlin, Alison, Ian, Harvey, Cara, Jim, Sheila. To hear about seafaring, cot death, growing up amidst a posse of aunts, love, a holiday boat trip and a crime scene on the platform……all in under an hour…. packed quite a punch!
