Creative Writing

Convenor:   Pam Cocchiara   Phone: 01633 892928

Meetings:   1.15 - 3.15 Friday

In the U3A Creative group
We like to be thought of as writers.
We're not pretentious,
Or even contentious,
Just a friendly bunch of blighters!

We may not write like Shakespeare,
Like Dickens, Byron or Poe;
If we get a yen
We pick up a pen
And then we just give it a go!

We don't always know what drives us
Or what gives us inspiration,
The Poetic Muse?
A bottle of booze?
Or an overheard conversation.

If you feel you'd like to join us
In our efforts at rhythm or rhyme,
Then don't delay,
Contact us today,
You'll be welcomed by us any time.

An anthology of work has been produced and copies are still being sold to members and friends.

Several members of the group co-wrote and performed a rap, The Geriatric Rap, as part of the anniversary concert held in November at the Congress Theatre, Cwmbran.

In December, four members of the group were interviewed by Gill Garrett on NH Sound, a local band radio programme. Gill has a two hour slot called The Writers' Room every other Thursday during which she interviews local writers about their work and invites them to perform some of their poetry or prose.
