Congratulations to Betty Milligan for receiving third prize in the Benalla Festival’s Writing Competition for her ‘Our Back Yard’ themed poem.
In November we will be sharing memories of ‘Endings’, of a time when something important in our lives ended and how it affected us. In December we will gather at the Northo at 1.30pm to celebrate the end of the year with the Creative Writing group, who will be sharing their December challenge.
Our summer break challenge is to write a 500 word story about a ‘Family Trait’ we inherited and how this plays out in our lives, ready to share at our first session in February.
Anyone who might be interested in joining the Creative Writing group next year is welcome to join them at their final session and Christmas break up at ‘The Northo’ on 10 December to get a taste of how they are encouraging one another to write a piece of fiction.
Next year our memoir writing group will have a new title ‘As Time Goes By--Memoir Writing'! The convenor and format will remain the same. All welcome!
