Writers and aspiring writers met at Lasham last Sunday, December 8th, for two events designed to help them improve their skills. In the morning, eight people worked on creative writing techniques, including close observation. This group will meet again at monthly intervals over the winter. In the afternoon, 11 people (pictured, in the TV room) took part in a one-off training session on how to write articles for publication. Both events were organised in response to feedback from the audience at the recent Winter Talk, 'Writing about Flying', and were facilitated by club member and poet Helen Evans.
