Worthy Words Workshops are well and truly 'up and running.' The prose writing group which started in October 2011 held its second meeting of 2012 at Worthing library on Wednesday 8 February. It may have been a icy cold day in Worthing, but there was plenty of warmth around the table as members shared their writing news with enthusiasm, before launching into a session on writing and placing seasonal and anniversary articles. Homework was set for those who wanted ideas before competition news was shared and manuscripts were read out. One member has embarked on a new novel and the group are looking forward to learning how this will develop. Several short stories were also read out and constructive criticism offered. Meetings are held once a month on the second Wednesday of each month between 2-4pm. New members are most welcome, and anyone interested in learning more should contact Wendy at firstname.lastname@example.org for a friendly chat.
Wendy has been asked to give an illustrated talk on Shipwrecks of Sussex on 29th February at Chichester Yacht Club, and is embarking on a new book for The History Press entitled Worthing a Pocket Miscellany.
