The creative writers have used the extra time they have gained during the enforced lockdown to indulge in some personal writing - both stories and poems. The lockdown has inspired some poets, for sure! Many of us have also been doing local walks and we have noticed things we have never seen before as we normally hurry about in our cars.This has resulted in some interesting travel pieces about our own location. There has been plenty of time to read and some of us have picked up a classic text we read many years ago and have written perhaps an extra chapter or epilogue imagining ourselves in the persona of the main character.
2020 Report: View
Unfortunately, the Creative writers have been unable to meet either physically or virtually.
However, we have all continued to write at home and shared our efforts with each other.
Most of us have contributed to the impressive U3A magazine as well as volunteering to read our pieces of
writing in person to the Stockport Talking Newspaper for the blind. We are all looking forward to more normal
times and meeting up as one again!
2019 Report: View
The Creative Writing group continues to thrive with a core of seven regular and committed
writers. Most of us enjoy writing for ourselves and we enjoy sharing our efforts and listening
to the criticism and advice of fellow members. We all have different strengths and are
prepared to lead sessions depending on our interests.
During the past year, we have looked at short stories and different styles of poetry and we have attempted to replicate the formats. To improve our own editing techniques, we have looked at a professional writer’s critique of an unpublished piece of writing.
Following the success of our anthology last year, we became involved with Stockport Talking Newspapers and several members of our group have recorded their original pieces for the newspaper.
As Bramhall U3A will soon be celebrating its tenth anniversary, we are currently working on a new anthology simply entitled 'Ten'. Copies will be available to U3A members and their friends during the celebration later this year with profits going once again to The Wellspring.
