The Creative Writing Group

handBefore enrolling on the creative writing group I was sceptical. I thought I'd be sat a table with paper and pen and told to write narrative, prose or poetry. But I was completely wrong. Suzi the teacher led me with the creative process skilfully and easily. We would study poetry, pop music, lyrics and photographs and discuss with the group what which meant to us. I think it is fair to say that myself and the other group members were surprised by our own abilities.
