Six Honest Serving-Men

Ben Scott02For our meeting on the March 1st 2016 author of childrens books and creative writing tutor, Benjamin Scott took inspiration from Rudyard Kipling. Specifically, Kipling’s poem naming What and Why and When, How and Where and Who. And then he told us what to do.

The workshop’s theme was how perspectives of one event differ from character to character. Benjamin had us coming up with scenarios inspired by postcard images, giving voice to objects and landscape features, switching tenses and heads – first person to third. A very insightful exercise as it turned out.

Paul Taylor gave the vote of thanks.

Successes: Patricia has been commissioned to do another article for Flora International Magazine.

Notices: Things are moving along nicely in preparation for this year’s Olga Sinclair Open Short Story Competition. We’ve secured an adjudicator and sponsors, including Van Dal Shoes. More information will follow closer to the launch date. And again, if any members have someone they’d like to hear as guest speaker and can be approached, or would themselves like to present a workshop to the Circle, please tell the committee.

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.
