We are a collection of amateur writers who belong to Beeston U3A’s Writing For Pleasure Interest Group. We enjoy playing with words, using our imaginations and trying out different styles and genres. Our members, if they so wish, can have their work showcased on this website so that their writing is available to all members of Beeston U3A, to other U3As around the country and to our friends and families.
2021 – A new year.
Although we have begun a new year, the situation in the country has not changed. In fact, the virus has mutated and is now spreading at a faster rate than ever before and we are, once again, in Lockdown. Our meetings will continue on Zoom and we have themes to follow for the full year. Hopefully, with the vaccination programme, we should be able, at some point in the future, meet as a group.
The first meeting of the year took place on Zoom. Frances took us through “How to write a novel” and produced some excellent notes to accompany her talk. In this time of isolation, many of our members have begun writing a novel (although several have novels published already) so this information was extremely useful and pertinent.
February’s meeting will again take place on Zoom, on February 3rd, where Julia will look at jingles with us. This was postponed from last year but, with the help of technology, Julia has decided to go ahead with it rather than postpone it again.
