Creative Writing is intended for those U3A members who have an established interest in, and talent for, writing and for those who are curious to see if they can produce stories, poems etc. There is ample opportunity to continue writing at home with members frequently set a task, which is to be produced for discussion at the next meeting.

The programme for 2018 is focussed on the richness of the English language and how it can be applied to improve the quality of creative writing.
