WELCOME TO HIGHAM WRITERS 2016
Our writers’ group was formed nearly eleven years ago by Denise Leppard with the aim of bringing together local writers. The accent is on writing for pleasure and recreation, if not eventually – profit. You will be interested to read her story on the About Us page.
Our group is an enthusiastic band of amateur writers, and you can find out more about our present, and some past, members on the the Author profile page. Some of their work is listed under their names in the Categories section on the right hand side of the web pages, and we are sure you will enjoy their original stories.
No doubt if you are reading this introduction and then going on to read some of the individual stories, you will most likely have a keen interest in writing. For the absolute beginner this can be very daunting. You may know that you would love to sit down yourself and express yourself in writing but are fearful of how well you could do it. The answer is to just do it. If you read what Denise says on the page entitled Absolute Beginners it could just give you the resolve you are looking for.
In addition to the stories we have a category called Poets Corner. You will find that some of our Authors can not only tell a good story, but have the power to entertain you with their poems. Some are humorous and others thought provoking. We think they will certainly brighten up your day and show that poetry can give a pleasurable experience.
We hope you enjoy our stories and poems, and if you want to see what we have written in the past then look in the Archives section.
We hope you enjoyed “THE CASTLE” a story about the owner of a Scottish Mansion. The story was longer than normal. You wil find many more good funny and thought provoking ones when you select one of our Authors names at the right hand side of this page. Happy Reading.
A new section has been introduced called a MASTERCLASS (click on the link above)
This idea for a MASTERCLASS came about in this way
In our meetings, we generally have one or two writing exercises, which we call our Ten Minute Teasers. Basically Denise gives out a title or an idea, and we have ten minutes to write what we like, and then read it back to the group. Sometimes those who join our group discover that they have talent and aptitude for writing never before suspected. The thing is not to give up if you are really keen on writing. Because we don’t always have time to develop our stories the idea of this new MASTERCLASS is to illustrate a way to proceed. We hope you enjoy the exercise and it gives you some valuable ideas for your own writing.
