Mums The Word writing group has secured funding to continue running!
After 8 successful pilot sessions for this writing group for mums and women ….Mums The Word has just secured funding through Arts Word to continue.
This nuturing, supportive and inspirational writing group restarted on Thursday 20 October 2011 and invites new members to join them.
It is organised by mum of seven Liz Brackenbury and supported by Matt Holland, Literature Festival Organiser and Hilda Sheehan of the BlueGate poets,
Such was the success from the trial period of this group, 6 of the mums have now had their previously unheard work published and everyone in the group has now embarked on their own writing journey in its many genres.
‘This is not about teaching anyone to write, its more about giving women the confidence and support to put their own personal ideas and experiences onto paper’ says Liz ‘ To have 6 members of the group some of whom had never previously written their thoughts and stories down, now see their work in print just shows what a bit of support and space to write can do. ‘
She continues ‘There is amazing writing talent in Swindon and this just proves that everyone has a story to tell that others can enjoy.’
The group meets at Lower Shaw Farm, Shaw from 7.30pm – 9.00pm on Thursdays until 12 July 2012.
It is run on a drop in basis and the cost will be £2.00 per session which includes writing/poetry workshops and light refreshments. No previous writing experience is nessesary.
