Learn how to write perfect limericks without breaking (or even bending) the rules.
Find out the importance of where the stresses fall in place names.
Learn how to make it easier for yourself to find true rhymes.

The April newsletter is now available, here and on the newsletter page.


February Meeting

At the February meeting members shared their reading and writing from the holiday period. Some brought copies of books to recommend, and some read from their own work completed or in progress. This first meeting always covers a fascinating range of writing, and is a good way to set us up with inspiration for the coming year.

Thanks to Meryl Tobin for the photographs.
