I’m delighted to be able to say during 2015, I’m working with Southampton City Libraries to help promote writing and literacy within the community.
Over my years of attempting to become a published writer, Southampton libraries have been hugely supportive. Everything from assistance with research, helping keep the twins entertained with Tots and Tunes, and assisting me when my printer died and I had to get my partial off to the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s New Writers’ Scheme.
This year I’ll be spending time in Southampton Libraries getting my manuscript finished and working with the libraries on some events to help encourage writing and reading. I’m going to keep an update of what I’m up to on this blog.
The first thing I’m doing is starting a writing group. As a mum of twins, finding time to write can be difficult. I’m starting Southampton Scribes to help those who want some dedicated writing time and wish to meet fellow writers. The first meeting is this Thursday. If you, or anyone you know are interested in joining, please email me on the address below.
An evening writing group designed for anyone wanting to find writing time. An hour of dedicated writing with the chance to meet and chat with fellow writers. All levels of experience welcome. Writers can choose to work on a current project, or work on a set theme. Meeting roughly once a month on a Thursday at Southampton Central Library.
Please contact Catherine Miller if you would like to join.
