Closed Until September…

With the AGM out of the way, we are closed for the summer. There will be no meetings until 17th September 2019. Our new programme will be posted very shortly.

We have lots of exciting things in store such as a self-publishing panel, a workshop on flash fiction, and will welcome authors like Ralph Jackman and Ian Nettleton. Keep watching our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.

If you are interested in becoming member, please feel free to make enquiries. You can even pay membership fees early to get it out of the way. We welcome writers of all genre and experience level.

In the mean time, we’d like to thank everyone, both members and guests, for joining us this season. You are what makes this group so special.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch:

All’s well that ends well

Tuesday 2nd July was our AGM. It is the last meeting of the season. It was here that winners of our in-house competition were awarded their trophies for the year:

Our Officers gave their reports.

The reports were positive and our group is continuing to grow!

Finally, there was some sad news. After four years, Phyllida Scrivens stepped down as Chairman. Phyllida has contributed a great deal to the group, infusing each meeting with her energy and verve, and given everything she has to ensure members are welcome and happy. We at the NWC will always appreciate everything she has done as Chairman.

She’ll be a tough act to follow, but we can think of nobody better for the task than Iain Andrews! Iain has been an outstanding member for many years and we have the utmost confidence that he will rise to every challenge.

There was a brief ‘passing of the torch’ between the former chair the the new. And by ‘torch’ we of course mean the gavel:

It’s been an amazing season. Thank you to all the members, guests, speakers, committee members and officers who make it all possible. This group wouldn’t be possible without you.

We look forward to starting a new season in September. The new programme will be posted soon. Keep an eye out for it. We hope to see everyone there, and would welcome any new members.

For details on membership, please go to our membership page which give you details of membership prices and benefits.

In the mean time, there is still time to enter to Olga Sinclair Open Short Story Competition.
