Writer's UNBLOCK

  • Alice's Place

I know this is just after Easter but I'm being selfish as I'm away the following week! So I hope most of you can make it. If not, we'll see about re-arranging.

In the meantime....happy writing!

    Hey, here's a thought, shall we have the next meeting in the gallery where I work at Gillman Barracks? It is quite near to Alice's home...

    I have benches and stools we could sit in the larger exhibition area which is currently empty..not cosy but could be fun!

    Oh! We could also have a workshop where we look at the artworks and create short stories and poems and read them out? Could be fun!

      Not cool. Not cool at all. The fact that you can't make it. Not cool. Not cool at all. Did I say not cool?

    Excellent evening. I noticed that the quality of the writing is getting better and better. We must be doing something right. And the meetup seems to be attracting good writers and turning average writers into really good ones.

    make that glasses, not gases. What a gas!

    April 3, 2013

  • Clement M.

    Thank you Alice for hosting an insightful evening. I felt high at the end of the evening - not sure if it was from the two gases of wine or the literary contributions from the talented writers in the group.
    Still, it was a delicious feeling.

    It was a great meet up. Its the first time I participated in a meet up and it surpassed my expectations, which were actually quite high I tell you. Alice was a wonderful host today and I liked all the writings read today.I wish that all of who are writing will do the justice by completing them in the manner they are expected.They are stories to be told and the world need to hear them..Best of luck...

    Wow, there will be quite the crowd, will it fit, Alice?
    Realise I am a bit late in asking this, but should we bring some drinks/ snacks? I will bring some stuff, am driving anyhow. Can I park easily at yours?

    See you tonight!

    April 2, 2013

    • Alice C.

      Yes will be a squeeze but we will do our best!! Drinks-snacks sound great. There's lots of parking on the street outside. As you come into the drive just head down via the door on the left hand side. X
