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. 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 contact page.
