We kicked off 2016 in style, welcoming lovely new member, Clare.

After everyone gathered at Ellie’s flat and gorged on cheese, pizza, hummus, and other such delights, we discussed plans for the year ahead.

Callyanne had a brilliant idea to start podcasting, so watch this space! Clare also expressed an interest in doing some illustrating, and possibly hosting an illustration workshop – another exciting idea!

Then, we got down to the real business of the evening: kicking off our writing year.

This month’s workshop was all about perspectives. The writers spent 7 minutes detailing a situation or scene from the third person. They then had 7 minutes to write the same scene from the first person.

This was a challenging exercise but one that we really enjoyed. You can read our perspective-bending writings HERE.
