2018/19 Schedule

Paignton Writers’ Circle Programme 2018/19

We will hold our meetings at Churston Golf Club from 2-4pm on the following dates. Our meeting room is accessed from the back stairs next to the bar lounge, at the far end of the lobby.  For those needing it, a stairlift is accessible from the ‘office’ stairs (please ask Danny, Ron, or a golf club staff member for assistance).

Please note that our meeting of 7th January will be held at Paignton Library, in room 11. If this ‘test meeting’ goes smoothly, and is easier for members, following meetings may also be held at the Library, in room 12.

Danny will endeavour to keep members on the Email List up-to-date with any change to our regular arrangements, so please let him know if you are not on the List. :-)

These are the suggested topics for each meeting, and you are invited to write up to 1000 words of prose or 40 lines of poetry, on either topic or a topic of your own choice.
