Creative Writing

Dawlish & District u3a now has two creative writing groups: our original Creative Writing group and the newly formed In Our Own Write.  Details of both are shown below.

Creative Writing

Each month group members are invited to produce a piece of writing on a given topic. There are always as many different interpretations as members of the group, but all are interesting and each a fresh view. This also stimulates conversation – which is why we don’t always have time to do a ‘ten minute write’ in the session!

Our aim is to try to put our thoughts on paper. We are not trying to write ‘War and Peace’ (that’s been done!) Neither are we looking to publish, although some might be so inspired. And it is not a dry English lesson.

We just want to use our grey cells and imagination to have fun.

For further information, including details of this month’s meeting and activity, please see our Creative Writing News.

Creative Writing group meetings are usually held monthly on the 4th Monday (Covid-19: check here)
Time: 10:30am to 12:30pm
Location: Members’ homes
Convenor: Alison Symons
Contact email: enquiries@u3a.dawlish.info or via our Contact form

There is no cost for this group but a small contribution for refreshments is appreciated.


In Our Own Write

In Our Own Write is the newer creative writing group and welcomes new members.

At each meeting, group members will bring some prepared work, for example, for the first meeting the “homework” is “Christmas in a country we know well.”
A sense of humour is essential and meetings are light-hearted.

We hope to bring to the group our experience of previous creative writing courses we have been on. We are not aspiring to be the next Charles Dickens or J.K Rowling, although we wouldn’t mind her royalties, but we are aiming to have fun trying.

For further information, including details of this month’s meeting and activity, please see our In Our Own Write news.

In Our Own Write group meetings are usually held monthly on the 2nd Monday (Covid-19: check here)
Time: 2pm to 4pm
Location: Members’ homes
Convenor: Travina White
