Writing for Fun

September 2012

On Thursday 27rdSeptember 2012, five members gathered at my flat.
Our topic this month was 'Returning Home'.
Despite two more being on holiday and one poorly, they all sent in their pieces and we had a full meeting with a selection of the usual delightful work.
Peter was unable to write a story, but instead treated us to a reading of The Midnight Express by Alfred Noyes (Author of the epic poem The Highwayman) which was magical and fascinating in its style and tremendous use of language to create atmosphere.
