creative writingYou 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.
