Open Evening

Norwich Writer's Circle's 2009/10 programme began tonight with an Open Evening, which saw several new members join our popular writing group.

The meeting itself gave an opportunity for the new NWC members to discuss their own writing interests, plus how they hope that joining the Circle will enhance their skills further.

One of the evening's highlights was the reading of several manuscripts, some of which were written by Circle members. These varied readings included poetry, a short story for children and the beginning of a historical novel.

Further historical novel excerpts were also read out to offer an idea of what is needed for NWC's first competition of the year. Amongst the first chapters read and discussed were books by Jean Fullerton and Simon Scarrow - both of whom are writers who will be visiting Norwich Writers' Circle in the coming months.

Simon Scarrow will be the visiting writer at our next meeting on 6th October. The famed historical novelist will be giving us the chance to hear his guide to writing in this bestselling genre.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
