Picture This Again With John Worrall

This evening, at The Assembly House, we welcomed John Worrall back to Norwich Writers' Circle.

Following his visit to us earlier in the year, John returned to adjudicate our competition to write an Article With A Local Theme of 800 words, + / - 20.

In addtion to John's constructive criticism of the competition entries, we also heard how he had had an entertaining time reading the 10 entrants. The writer and photographer also stressed to us the factors that make up a good article, including getting the reader hooked at the start, keeping their attention in the middle and then finishing off the piece properly.

The winners of the competition were:

Booming Adult Ballet Classes
by Anne Sanderson

The Cathedral In The Fields
by Elizabeth Bencze

On Wishbone Ash
by Stuart McCarthy

After hearing the winning articles, we then listened to 2 more competition entries, both of which focused on the vibrant shops and colourful marketplace in Norwich.

Our next meeting is on 1st June, and will be an interactive workshop on Presentation & Punctuation by Anne Funnell.

We hope to see you next time.
