2019/20

Remember, we’ve moved our monthly meeting to be held on the second Tuesday of every month for this season. We still meet in the Thomas Wall Community Lounge, just by the Robin Hood pub in Sutton.

10 September: Writing resources and President’s Prize winners

Members are invited to bring writing resources they have found useful to share with others.  This may be:

  • Books (printed, ebooks and audible)
  • Websites and forums
  • Software
  • Retreats and activities

The winners of the President’s Prize will read out their winning stories.

8 October: Flash fiction competition

Time to get your pens and minds sharpened! We’ll be exploring the short form of writing this month with a flash fiction competition. No planning, no preparation, just write to a theme chosen on the night. You’ll have a set time to create something brand new in the briefest of forms possible, then if you want to you can read it out and be in the running for a prize. We’ll have two rounds of competition, so limber up and come ready to create.

12 November: Performing your own work, with John Wheeler

By popular demand, John Wheeler will be returning to Sutton Writers with an interactive workshop on performing your own written work.

Members should bring along short performances pieces as there will be an opportunity to apply what we have learned at the end of the workshop.

10 December: Christmas party and performance of original sketches

It’s the time of year when Sutton Writers celebrate the holidays and this year we are inviting members to perform original sketches for the amusement and delight of all those gathered.

Applause and prizes will be the reward of the pieces judged best by the audience on the night.
