After discussion with Devellopment Plus staff:

  1. 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.
  2. 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…………….

Really looking forward to seeing our work in print!!!!!!!!

Our Place, Ourselves and our Poetry – New Project for October & November 2013.

Hi Everyone – I thought I’d let everyone know that a new project is starting at the Development Plus Centre on Croft Street, Lincoln entitled: Our Place, Ourselves, Our Poetry.

We [i.e the SSC] have been asked to respond to a request from members of the centre who wish to write some poetry. I’m delighted to be involved with a 5 week project just to see what the needs are and to respond in any way that might be helpful.

We start next week on the 29th October and I’ll keep everyone posted about progress.

Cheers…………Vernon.
