“Writing is a lot like making soup. My subconscious cooks the idea, but I have to sit down at the computer to pour it out.” Robin Wells

Dear Writers,

I am looking forward to seeing you next Tuesday at the Battersea Arts Centre.

Gal will lead this workshop will be and focusing on Outlines. Are they useful or a waste of a writer’s time? They are like Marmite - some love to write them, while others hate them with a passion. But what is the use of using an Outline? How detailed an outline should you write? What kind of outline to write? A mindmap? A blueprint?

Other news for the group. Brad is organising a get-together for Friday 5 April at Donna Margherita which is close to the Battersea Arts Centre on Lavender Hill.

And we have changed the date for the last meeting in April from 16 April to Tuesday 23 April which is more convenient as it means we will be back from our Easter breaks.

So, hoping to see you on Tuesday!

From the Original Writers Team,

Rupert, Gal, Brad, Simon, Madeleine, Joe and Sen

PS Yes, we have grown in the past few months! I am delighted that we now have a group of able volunteers to help run the group. I promised them that this would not be hard work or a big time commitment. We are all here to just get the conversation going and the words flowing.
