Ashton-inMakerfield U3A- Creative Writing

Group Leader - Mavis Fairhurst


The group meets in the Ashton-in-Makerfield YMCA on the third Friday of the month from 1.30pm to 3.00pm.


We are a small group who enjoy writing in a friendly, supportive atmosphere. Members write short stories and have also submitted magazine articles.


Many of us are interested in ‘life writing’, recording personal histories to hand down to our children and grandchildren. At some point during our meeting we have an ‘off-the-cuff’ exercise, writing for ten minutes on a topic suggested by the group leader. All other writing is done at home and brought in to be read to the group the following month.
