Wimborne Writing Group
Members of Wimborne Writing Group have published novels, poetry, plays (which have also been performed), short fiction and various forms of non-fiction. Two members have gone on to achieve MAs, and two members completed PhDs – all in Creative Writing. I started teaching creative writing in Wimborne nearly two decades ago ago and then established Wimborne Writing Group from these classes in 2006. Wimborne Writing Group is a collective of dedicated and talented writers most of whom have succeeded in being published during their time in the group.
I tutored Creative Writing, Arts and Social Sciences courses for The Open University.
I am experienced and qualified at leading groups and writing workshops, and giving readings. I’m a qualified life coach (RD1st) and offer mentoring to writers and poets.
My academic qualifications include: BA (English Language and Literature); MA (Creative Writing); MSc (Sociology & Social Policy) PGCE (post-16 & adult education); Fellow of HEA.
I am a full member of the Society of Authors and of Literature Works Writers’ Academy.
Wimborne Writing Group has published 2 anthologies of prose, poetry and drama: ‘Crumbs on the Table’ (ISBN 978-0-9559503-0-8) in 2008 and ‘Grapes on the Vine’, (ISBN 978-0-9559503-1-5) in 2013. Both books were popular and sold well.
Currently we meet monthly on Wednesdays at Clarcs which is the Community Learning & Resource Centre in King Street, Wimborne. If you are interested in joining please contact me, Sarah Steele, at Clarcs.
