Hastings Writers’ Group

We’ve had a busy few weeks. On July 14 we had one of our regular Manuscript Evenings, where brave members present their work for constructive comments from their colleagues, and on July 28 we met to read out our entries for our current competition, crime stories.

We had a great many entries, which meant that each person could only read for about five minutes - far too many cliff-hangers for one evening.

Members have also been busy preparing their contributions for ‘Strandline’, our 2014 anthology. The cover of the new book was chosen by popular vote. Well done to the talented John Vallender, whose watercolour was the winning choice.

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.
