Wimborne Writing Group
I’ve been leading a Creative Writing class in Wimborne for 18 years and it is a wonderful group of dedicated and talented writers many of whom have succeeded in being published during their time in the 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 study for and achieve MAs, and two members completed PhDs – all in Creative Writing.
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 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.
In 2008, Wimborne Writing Group published an anthology of prose, poetry and drama: ‘Crumbs on the Table’ (ISBN 978-0-9559503-0-8).
In December 2013, we published our 2nd anthology, ‘Grapes on the Vine’, (ISBN 978-0-9559503-1-5) also very 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.
