With winter here there’s now no reason to go outside and many reasons to stay by the fire and read and write.
And there’s always an audience for what you have written among your fellow FAWSH members.
Prose you can send to join other members’ contributions at Prose from members.
Poetry? Try Poetry where you’ll be in great company.
For a bit of fun, read Writers’ fun or send your own from your reading or simply make it up!
GregT has been busy in the past few months bringing us a series of literary and etymological crosswords. Have a look at them at Etymology exercise. There are answers for all but the last if you get stumped.
Jean has suggested another prompt for a 100-word exercise. Have at look at the prompt and others’ entries at 100-word exercise.
We now have one brave soul who has offered a 250-word autobiography. Read that clever contribution at Our autobiographies. Yours could be there too!
We are still looking for the next instalment of our chain story. Eight members have contributed; read the story so far at FAWSH chain story. The challenge is there for the next instalment.
Started by GregB, our president, Grammar and other writing bugbears gives you the opportunity to rant about usage or modern grammar.
Finally, let us all know what you have loved or hated to read during lockdown. Contributions so far are at What have you been reading?
ANYONE WHO HAS IDEAS FOR OTHER ACTIVITIES WHILE WE ARE NOT MEETING SEND THEM IN!
SEND ANY CONTRIBUTIONS—WRITING OR SUGGESTIONS—TO UTA.
FINALLY, YOUR COMMITTEE IS WORKING ON RE-STARTING FACE-TO-FACE MEETINGS WITH THE SECOND SATURDAY IN JULY—11 JULY.
