The Writing Group


 All are welcome to attend our meetings.

The Writing Group formed late in 2013 and meets on a regular basis via Zoom. Meetings consists of a presentation, show & tell, and an open forum for questions and comments.

This is a support/self-help group, not one for expert writers (although we do have a few published authors in our ranks). Our aim is to encourage members to exchange information, ideas, and techniques for writing their family and local histories.

In 2023 The Writing Group is excited to welcome Elizabeth and Emily as the new group leads, following the retirement of the previous lead, Lilian.

This group meets on the second Thursday of each month at 10:30am.

Each session lasts approximately 2 hours.
