Shorelink Writers’ Group

Twenty-five members of the Shorelink Writers Group brought a highly successful year of meetings to a conclusion with an evening of fun and games plus seasonal short stories and poems.

The group that meets at the Isobel Blackman centre in St Leonards every Monday evening prides itself in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere – rather than regimented meetings that can be a bit daunting for new members.

The Christmas meeting, for example, featured some impromptu carol singing from talented members while all the readings brought the festive season to the fore.

From a ghost story where innocent home owners had a regular visit from a vicar killed in a bombing raid during the Second World War, through to the New Year’s Eve at the end of the millennium – the next millennium – and a current day office party that went wrong to a little boy evacuated to the country who feared Santa with his bag of presents may not know his new whereabouts.

The group meets every Monday evening – one Monday being readings of members’ stories or poems and the next a relaxed workshop run by a member.

The group welcomes experienced as well as first-time writers and with numerous social events throughout the year this is a group with much appeal.

And with no joining fee, no annual subscription but simply funded by a charge of £2 each evening attended it can claim to be real value for money!
