Get Writing!

The Waveney Author Group (WAG) had their first library event at Southwold Library yesterday (Mon 17th Aug 2015). A lovely small library, managed by Charlotte Clark. Although small it has nearly everything, in fact it would be hard to find what it doesn’t have.

Before starting this author event a holiday maker popped in with some courgettes that had grown into marrows (she had popped home to Norfolk to check on her garden) and asked Charlotte if she would like to sell them, along with the plants that the library was selling. The courgettes /marrows were huge!

Here are some photos, in no particular order:

With my author hat on I attended the first East Anglian author fair at the end of July at the fabulous Coconut Loft Art Gallery on Waterloo Road. This gave locals an opportunity to ‘meet the author’  with twelve authors from across Norfolk and Suffolk, including: Helen Thwaites, Caroline Way, Hannah Precious, Ian Robb, Terry Tarbox, Pam Finch, Bronwen Grono, Jocelyn Blakey, Helen Milligan, Patricia Peters and Ann Bowyer.

The centrepiece of the event were five newly published authors who had risen to a ‘get published’ challenge set by themselves during a writing workshops last November. They formed the group Waveney Author Group (WAG) and go on tour later this month.

I’m looking forward to The  2nd Annual event which will take place next July and an interim ‘meet the authors’ weekend will be held at the Coconut Loft on the 5th & 6th Dec.

Author places are selling well, with only a few places left. For more information pop along to www.getwriting.co.uk

I know you don’t spell ‘writery’ like that but I say it so I wrote it. And it is an exciting time…

Last November I led a set of writing workshops and had the fabulous authors/tutors: Glynis Smy, Ann Bowyer, Rosy Thornton, Jayne-Marie Barker  and Jo Wilde run some sessions. 6 of the writers set themselves a challenge to write and self-publish before July 10th. I decided to join them in this challenge. We decided on the name Waveney Author Group (WAG) as we all live within the Waveney area.

Our first meeting was at The Coconut Loft Art Gallery and we were grateful for the support of The Journal newspaper who came to do an article on us and took this picture.

The Coconut Loft Art Gallery became our place to meet. Firstly on a monthly basis and now we meet on a weekly basis to enable the writers to achieve their goal. The Coconut Loft Art Gallery is a great place to write, an inspiring place that not only sells lovely food but also Richard and Gina, the owners, are always willing to help, whether it be to help one of the writer’s sort her blurb out or help another writer sort her page layout.

Today we met in Beccles Library to discuss social networking, after all, if you’re writing a book you want people to know about it, right? We had intended looking at all aspects of social networking and started by booting up the laptops and looking at blogging using the WordPress site. We soon found that the WiFi connection was not strong enough for us all to be on line at the same time and unfortunately we achieved very little but we had fun. Many thanks to all at Beccles Library for letting us use their room.
