Following the break, class members shared a diversity of travel tales and some more wonderful stories of rebellion, including Elizabeth’s diverting story of a playful rebellion against patriarchy as a young girl in Ireland. At our next regular session on August 28th we will be sharing tales of being the ‘Odd One Out’ ‘Have you ever felt like you didn't fit in? Too old or too young? Wrong clothes or different culture? Write about a time you felt out of place and why’.
There was almost a full house at our Northo gathering this month. Stories shared included Ray’s ‘If Only I’d’… (worn a seatbelt!); Jenny’s humorous story inciting ‘Rebellion’ against the overcharging for tea in our current café culture, and David’s story about two ‘swashbuckling’ ancestors in a family history piece inspired by the birth of his first grandson.
Finally, a reminder that creative writing from 1 to 2.15 pm now precedes our catch up at the Northo from 2.30 to 3.30pm on the 2nd Monday.
