Capturing London Moon Fairies

Another 3rd Thursday, another lovely meeting.  A bit of a bumpy start as the library tried to accommodate us somewhere and the facilitator ran around trying to disorganisedly organise. Must remember to carry less stuff. Needless to say Anne was missed.

Once ensconced in the education room William started us off with a lovely poem capturing a snap in time. Then newcomer Chris treated us to the quirky going-ons of quaint little villages. Sadijah's chapter led to a lively discussion about the beautiful melting pot that is London. Finally Clare treated us to a "silly" poem which brought us to the realisation that of course the moon tastes like guava!

No pub today. So off each of us went in to the cold evening.

Next Session on the 4th February. See you there.

A Room of Our Own

Wow, 2016 got off to a flying start yesterday for wgwg.  We actually got our own room for once so we didn't have to read out our stuff sat next to a table of young children playing on library computers.  Not saying we dislike children you understand, it's just that some of our stuff can be, ahem, of an adult nature, so it was nice not to feel inhibited by the thought of young ears inadvertently hearing something they shouldn't.  Let's hope we can have the room again in the future, it was almost like old times!

There were new faces around the table which is always exciting and some great poetry and prose was forthcoming, so I hope the newbies liked us as much as we liked them and their work and that they feel moved to join our merry throng.

Great prose, great poetry, exciting new people and then off to the pub - that's the way to do it!

It's definitely 2016

Greetings, I hope that you had an acceptable Christmas and New Year, but now it's time to get down to business - writing business.  Thursday 7th is definitely the date, and 6pm is definitely the time to be at Willesden Green Library for the first  wgwg of 2016.  Hope to see you there, and I for one can't wait to hear what people have written over the break!
