Twenty six participants from Warwickshire joined Chrissie for an interactive talk about life story writing recently. They enjoyed time 'together', and were inspired to start capturing their own 'anecdotes' from memory after hearing extracts from some of the extra-ordinary things some of Chrissie's students had been writing about during lockdown and before. Chrissie will be looking forward to judging their future writing competition.

Our final meeting of 2020 was over the internet again, with a great deal of discussion about the merits of outdoor performances alongside DSW member Johns ghostly tale in the park.
And as a new, and hopefully brighter new year is around the corner, a number of DSW members have been awarded Bursaries and will be attending Quad courses in January 2021.
Wishing you all a happy and safe Christmas and New Year!

DSW continue to share writing opportunities and support each other during these difficult times. Our November meeting happened via Zoom and members who were awarded a bursary towards the cost of Quad will be receiving cheques shortly. The bursary was used to attend Alex Davies' excellent Ghost Writing session - and the group is looking forward to being able to work with local actors on a ghostly project in the future. Two members enjoyed being part of a lively online reading group hosted by another DSW member. Next month we will be meeting on line, and look forward to having a ghostly script to critique.
