Scout & Guide HQ
2nd Monday of the month
1.45 - 3.45 pm
  • Leader: Joan Potter - 0151 924 6027
  • Coordinator:  Sue Watkinson (contactable at Horizons meetings)

We are an informal group who enjoy writing in a variety of styles, from articles to stories and poems, with some friendly discussion and a few tips. Members’ suggestions are always welcome. Homework is optional!

We meet on the second Monday of the month: 10 June, 8 July and 12 August.

Group members enjoy reading their own work, both prose and poetry, sharing feedback and completing writing exercises, and in March we welcomed our first guest. John Winter, local author and U3A member, entertained and informed us with an informal talk about his recent book set in 60’s Liverpool, ‘Blame it on the Beatles and Bill Shankly’, and on writing in general. We are now looking forward to hearing him again at the Speaker Meeting on Thursday – 7 November.

On Sunday – 24 November we shall be going public for the second time with a presentation of some of our work at the Sunday Social.
