We’ve now missed three meetings due to COVID-19 lockdowns and there is no obvious path to getting back to normal.
Until we do, there are still ways we can keep in touch.
We are still looking for someone brave enough to take on the next instalment of our chain story. Six people so far have taken the challenge; read the story so far at FAWSH chain story.
Some of our poets have submitted their work for us to see at Poetry.
In the absence of face to face prose meetings see members’ contributions at Prose from members.
No one, not even your president has been able (or game enough) to submit their 250-word autobiography. Craft your masterpiece and send it in for it to appear at Our autobiographies.
These contributions are from members who have come across things which would amuse writers in particular. Look at Writers’ fun.
Etymologist extraordinaire, GregT, has produced a number of etymological and literary crosswords. See them at Etymology exercise.
Grammar and other writing bugbears
Though started by GregB, our president, this is open to anyone who wants a rant about usage or modern grammar that has been bugging them. The first contribution is at Grammar and other writing bugbears.
There are three possibilities here for people who have yet to contribute. See them all, and members’ efforts at 100-word exercise. We are looking, too, for new suggestions for topics—over to you!
What have you been reading?
We have all been reading (we hope) over the lockdown. Let us all know what you have loved or hated. 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.
