ON Monday, May 12 we met to submit our entries for our latest competition, Life Writing. Always popular, we had to write 2,000 words about an episode from our lives, and we took turns to read out extracts from our entries.
It is always interesting to hear about other people’s lives, and the members of the writing group are a diverse and varied collection of people. We were only sorry that we could not hear everybody’s entry read out in full.
Our judge this time will be writer and creative writing tutor Andrea Samuelson. She will have a hard job to decide between the entries.
Hastings Writers’ Group meets fortnightly at the White Rock Hotel. The group is currently fully subscribed, but if you would like to know more about our activities or to be put on our membership waiting list, please email membership.HWG@gmail.com or telephone Stephanie Gaunt on 01424 252888.
Our current anthology Animal Writes, which benefits RSPCA Bluebell Ridge and also Dogs for the Disabled, can be purchased online from our website, www.hastingswriters.co.uk. You can also find our page on Facebook.
