Membership of the Caistor writers’ group – set up by Timothy Weston – has settled down, with an average attendance of seven people each week.
“The members have all been very enthusiastic, joining in with the set activities as well as sharing their personal work,” said Tim.
Activities have included continuing from the first page of a story, writing inspired by music, responding to a letter, writing something including words chosen by other members, and rewriting a piece into their own style.
Meetings start with an introduction from Tim and then members usually read out their work while other members discuss it.
At the end of the session, Tim talks about what is planned for next time and hands out worksheets.
When the group first started, the early sessions only ran for about an hour-and-a-half but have recently been extended to two-and-a-half hours, as the discussion periods have lengthened as people have settled into the group.
Things are going well for this newcomer to the Arts and Heritage Centre, but there is still room for more members.
