Next Words for Castle Ward Meeting
Reminder@ Words for Castle Ward is taking a break this August and there will be no group meeting on 12 August.
About the Group
The group came about as an initiative of the previous Castle Wards Arts and Craft collective. Meeting originally in Terenichol Cottage at the Farmyard for ad hoc new writing sessions, the group has developed to meeting monthly for feedback primarily but also for new writing. The group has been involved in Castle Ward Book Festival, and continues to give readings at different venues. The group partners with Down Arts Centre to present a platform for sharing written work ‘Poems on a Sunday Afternoon‘.
The group concentrates on feedback three sessions out of four so, for feedback sessions, bring a few copies of a piece you have written (or extract/chapter if your work is of the novel variety). Look forward to getting – and giving – constructive response to the work that is brought in. About once a quarter we will have a new writing/inspiration based workshop, just for a bit of variety.
The group is open to all writing genres and level of experience. Though members do attend on an ongoing basis, an ongoing commitment is not required. The normal venue is the Education Suite, National Trust Castle Ward and the group generally runs the second Saturday of the month – however this is subject to change.
Admission: There is no charge to attend the group but normal National Trust admission rates may apply.
The group is hosted by Olive Broderick – and I do ask that those participants planning to attend email email@example.com beforehand.
