1.     The Anthology

The selection committee are meeting at the Centre following our usual meeting. They need more contributions, particularly of stories. We have added a further season: the season of love, so contributions please.

Discussion took place on the best layout for prose items. And inset first line of each paragraph was chosen, the rest to be blocked, to give a neater overall effect.

 2.     Future challenges:

19th March     Weather – with a seasonal theme       Sue S

2nd April         Precious metal - Rosie

3.     Web site

Emaleen will be happy to put new contributions on the site. The intention is to change the examples of both our prose and poetry work at the end of each month.

If no new examples are offered we will use items from the previous Anthology. 

There being no other business, the meeting closed with an explanation of the FOG index by Sue Whitehead with a trial run using the work from our Weather with a seasonal slant.

  • Time lines:


  • Items sent via e-mail (or g-mail) to Eileen up to the third week of July

  • Hand written items and typed items which for some reason CANNOT BE SENT VIA E-MAIL must be sent by the end of June.

Web site  


  • Emaleen has agreed to assist with running the website and has stayed on for a first training session with Eileen.

  • Contributions are needed for the current work page. If not enough items are offered, it was agreed we will use items from previous anthologies, providing the authors are still members of Wordwrights and are happy to have their work included.

Eileen gave advanced warning that she will be leaving the Group after the summer break.
