DSW member brings holiday memories to life online

Congratulations to DSW member Chrissie, whose life story writing expertise helped create an online memory box of Lincolnshire seaside holidays.

Working with local writers and creatives, stories and experiences were woven together to create a series of audio tales you can listen to online, as well as stories from her own past in ‘Going East’

Congratulations, Chrissie!

Annual General Meeting- Derby Museum, Sun 1 May 2022, 2pm

This month’s meeting will be our AGM- we will be looking over what we can learn from the past year, as well as discussing our plans for the next one.

If you’re thinking about joining us to say hello, please be aware the AGM agenda means there is no script discussion or story workshopping in the May meeting- we’ll resume normal service when we meet again at the beginning of June.

For more information, send us a message through our contact page.

DSW members in print- April update

Another great Sunday afternoon meeting with excellent feedback on DSW member Andrew’s outline in progress, and news of member’s work getting recognition far and wide, including a mention of DSW member Johnny’s new book, ‘No Borders to Poetry’ in the latest National Association of Writers Groups newsletter.
For more information about the book, you can log in to his website at www.jfsheehan.com

March Meeting at Derby Museum, Sunday the 6th, 2-4pm

After nailbiting tension in the gritty drama script we read last month, we’re hoping the sitcom pilot written by DSW member John will bring more cheer and less fear to our March meeting in the first floor education room at Derby Museum – the agenda and script will be available for members to download shortly. If you’d like to join us, you’d be more than welcome- visit the Join Us page to get in touch.

Online book launch event, 26 Jan 2022, for DSW member Johnny

Local Nottingham writer and DSW member JF Sheehan has his book ’No Borders to Poetry’ released on 26 January 2022. For Johnny, as he’s known locally, it’s his first book, and while he could not read or write till he was eleven years old, he admits his book might have taken a little time to develop. You might still be in time to catch his Zoom Book Launch on 26 January at 2-3pm – you can join the zoom meeting by clicking this on link https://zoom.us/j/98552235502?pwd=ZUtpeTZKVklZZGhmOHBuWFo2V0VHQT09

The book is a mixture of poetry, short stories and plays, and it’s available on Amazon – £4.99 for the paperback or £2.99 for the Kindle version, with half of all book sales going to The Canaan Trust, a Nottingham homeless charity. If you’d like any more information about the book or its author JF Sheehan, you can log in to his website at www.jfsheehan.com
