HAVE YOU GOT AN IMAGINATION??
You could use it to write stories Whether you have a secret ambition, you are experienced, or even published, the Hungerford U3a Creative Writing group is a joyful and inspiring place to be.
We meet once a month, and swap our writing news, have a live writing exercise and a project is set for the coming month. This is a very relaxed group without pressure or criticism, only positive feedback and encouragement. Why not start a new interest and meet new friends? You will be made very welcome. Please contact Iris Lloyd via the groups page.
There would normally be meetings of the whole U3A from time to time to listen to specific speakers and discuss progress. If you would like to provide any feedback - or offer to help - please use the contact form, we'd love to hear from you. Restarting with 'coffee morning' on 8 March.
