Reading and Writing

Our local writing group and radio studios have now been re-housed in a renovated chapel which is now a wonderful dedicated arts venue.  See http://thirdageblogger.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/the-chapel.html for more photos.









At the official launch this month our radio programme went out live but this time, a first for us, in front of an audience.







Other performers included a storyteller, poets and musicians.

The chapel, or ChapELFM as it is known, is a great place which encourages both young and the more mature to get involved with reading, writing, performing, producing as well as on the technical side using the state-of-the-art equipment.  It’s all very exciting after meeting in a back room at a local library and an office above a parade of shops where noise frequently caused problems when recording

This month I was able to meet a Facebook writing buddy, Leigh Russell, when she came to a book signing of her latest novel,  Race to Death, at the local Waterstones.


I have had a couple of short stories accepted this month, one at CafeLit  http://www.cafelit.co.uk/Reunion.html


I am currently doing a free on-line Open University course Introduction to Journalism which is time consuming but most interesting and useful.  They have an amazing range of courses available.  Check them out at FutureLearn.com.
