At Mungrisdale Writers’ Group we believe that everybody has creative writing waiting to be released, and we provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment to encourage this.
We meet fortnightly, in the comfortable Village Hall in Mungrisdale, near Keswick in Cumbria, under the guidance of a resident tutor, Angela Locke.
We aim to enable writing in poetry, fiction, flash fiction and short stories. At each session the tutor proposes homework for the group and we encourage everyone to read out their work in the first half of the following session. This is followed by a stimulus-led writing activity. We treat all contributions positively and with respect.
Tutors from outside provide a Summer Programme and every year, the group produces a booklet of members’ work.
In 2011 we held our first poetry competition. It was a great success and we are now planning another one for 2013.
You are welcome to come along and see whether you would like to join us. Please see the website for details.
