7.30 – 8.30 (ish) Editing Workshop by Jacq Molloy

Redrafting our own writing can be a difficult task. What are the warning signs to look for that indicate our writing suffers from flab, for example. The aim with editing is to have a stronger, sharper, leaner piece of writing. We will talk about how to achieve this and do a group activity to illustrate a way to approach editing.

8.30 – 8.40 Short break – there is a Café at Leaf Hall that serves teas, coffees and divine cake!

8.40 – 9.30  News, updates and works in progress. Members will be sharing their works in progress, and feedback is greatly received.  At the end of the meeting, is news and updates on events and ideas.




Meeting starts at 7.30pm at Leaf Hall, 51 Seaside, Eastbourne- get there a couple of minutes early and grab yourself a cuppa from the cafe (or a glass of wine) and if you’re lucky, they will have their to-die-for gluten free brownies on sale.

We are delighted to have Robin join us as our guest speaker at the June meeting.
