Encore!

2nd February saw the return of James Dimelow to the front for his adjudication of the short playwriting competition. But before we got down to business, we had four successes to announce.

The EDP has published two more of Margaret Turner’s poems, My Friend and November. These Margaret read out to an appreciative audience. Another East Anglian title, Suffolk Norfolk Life accepted not just Patricia Stammers’ Snowdrops at Walsingham article, it included her scenic photos too. Phyllida Scrivens was also featured with her recent biography, Escaping Hitler. And it’s not all been reading matter. On the 11th, Mr Dimelow and audience are set to see the first scene of his latest play perfomed as part of the Maddermarket Theatre’s latest talent showcase.

Which all brings us back to James’ adjudication…

James summed up again his guidelines and his own strict adherence to them when choosing his winners. In fact he had four top quality entries. These were: (Commended) We Have Ways by Phyllida Scrivens; (3rd) Easy To Love by Olive Riseborough; (2nd) Dreaming Of Her Majesty by Andrew Heron; (1st) By Appointment by Mickie Dann.

It was a fun night, both for performers and audience as the winners entries were enacted.

Festivities

WordPress Christmas Pattern

On Saturday 12th December Norwich Writers’ Circle held its annual Christmas celebration.

The well-attended social was held at Anteros Arts Foundation, on Fye Bridge Street, which will be our new meeting venue from January 2016. The party saw members enjoy a wide selection of Christmas food and drink. The fun evening was further enhanced by a ‘Secret Santa’ raffle, along with a team quiz. The festive-themed quiz was then won, appropriately enough, by ‘Santa’s Little Helpers’.

At NWC’s first meeting in Anteros, on Tuesday January 19th 2016, we will be welcoming Ejike Ndaji. The Performance Poet will be demonstrating and discussing his craft, as well as setting our latest Circle Competition. We hope to see you there.

Congratulations to Norwich Writers’ Circle member Margaret Turner who has had another poem published in the Evening News.

Margaret’s poem, Sorry For The Muzak, was printed in the Poets’ Corner section of the paper on 7th June 2014.

Margaret adds, “This is my recollection of a conversation under local anaesthetic, with only minor tweaks, it can be sung to a certain ABBA tune!”

We next meet at 7.30pm on Tuesday 16th September in The Assembly House when best-selling author Rachel Hore will be discussing her life and career. Please feel free to join us.
