Decision day today concerning the future of the group and the publication of some of our poems.
After discussion with Devellopment Plus staff:
- The group agreed that they wanted to carry on with the Poetry sessions meeting at the same time on a weekly basis. They also indicated they wanted to write short stories and non-fiction. Having a leader for the group was considered absolutely necessary and DP will facilitate this.
- The group members were keen to see their work in print. To this end, each of us will submit up to three poems to be collated by DP staff. The aim will be to produce a pamphlet/booklet of poetry before Xmas with enough copies for members to circulate to others………..
We also agreed a title for the group: A WORD IN EDGEWAYS…………….
We each read our pieces which we had worked on the previous week……..
Themes were around: Papa, My Dad, Autumn and Cousin Alan.
Really looking forward to seeing our work in print!!!!!!!!
