The purpose of the Group is to improve members' skills in writing fiction,
non-fiction, prose, poetry and short drama pieces using varied genre.
A different theme is chosen for each month and members read their own work,
in turn, to the rest of the group. Criticism is intended to be constructive.

The Group publishes a selection of its writings twice annually in a booklet titled
Pick 'n' Mix, sales of which ensure future publication with some
of the profits intended for worthy local causes.
Some members have published their own work independently.

There are no additional joining fees but members are invited
to buy copies of Pick 'n' Mix either to give as presents or sell on.
An occasional donation towards tea/coffee and biscuits is appreciated.

After a brief look at the history and structure of our own language and all the
events that have influenced it; from the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons, to the invention of print, we have now begun to look at literature too, working through
the most important influences from Chaucer onwards.
For most of the time however we engage in lively discussion about modern
English, how it has changed in our lifetimes and whether it is
unduly pedantic to disapprove of the changes.
There are no exercises and no homework; the objective is purely to enjoy
looking at fascinating aspects of our language.
There are no costs involved
