Whats On

scRibble Creative Writing Group

Monday, 25 September 2017 - 7:30pm

 

 
USUALLY LAST MONDAY OF THE MONTH - rescheduled to Tuesday this week due to Bank Holiday 
 
"scRibble is a friendly, welcoming Preston-based amateur writers' group that’s always open to new faces - and voices!
 
Meeting beside the Ribble in the friendly environs of Preston’s best arts pub, The Continental, we share our ‘scribbles’ -  poems, short stories, flash fiction, daft limerick or fantastic new kids’ stories.
 
Poets, novelists, playwrights, short story writers and people who think they’re just written the best ode to a Pork Scratching or Black Pudding, the greatest love poem or the next Harry Potter all bob along, secure in the knowledge that everyone’s work will get an enthusiastic reception.
 
We're proud to be a group of mixed abilities and experience: some of us have had pieces published, some have done courses, others just have a go. What links us - and you? - is that we all enjoy reading and sharing the pieces we’ve created, with most of us picking up our pens years after we left school.
 
Offering useful and constructive feedback in a relaxed and respectful setting, scRibblers help each other and any budding authors out there. Sessions are nice and short, usually hanging off a loose monthly theme meant to inspire a thought or two, maybe with an exercise - though participation is optional. Apart from getting your round in! (Joke.)
 
scRibble is also a place to share contacts and knowledge of local arts and writing events, and we have plans to arrange our own events - so we may rope you into that, too!
 
scRibble meets in the snug of The Continental every last Monday of the month and all are welcome to attend as often or seldom as you like."
 
Come and get scRibbling! The cost? To you, no charge!
