The New Normal for Now: DSW July Meetup


Meeting in the sunshine was rather different from our usual meetings held in the Museum.  We enjoyed being able to discuss our different experiences of writing (or not writing) and responses to our lockdown experiences.  

Several of us found it difficult to write initially, some 'recovered' their muse quicker than others, some confessed to a short writing frenzy, which then stopped -  feast or famine.  Some members have written and read more poetry, some members have been inspired to write about problems which have emerged due to the lockdown experience.  

We enjoyed working together to critique two short scripts and wish RL every success with these pieces.  We look forward to a further meeting - outside in the sunshine.  Date to be confirmed.

November Online Meetup report

  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.    

December 2020 meeting roundup

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!
