July

Seven members of the writers' Group met at Lesley's home to share their stories on the theme of 'A Great Show'.  As usual, all the interpretations of the topic were different.  They ranged from shows provided by wildlife, including the dolphins and marine life of Mandurah and the bears of Alaska to a visit to Legoland in the UK, a disastrous display for the Perth Festival, and a description of several shows enjoyed over a number of years.  There was a description of personal adventure on the Indian Pacific Train and a touching story of family history.  

Thanks go to Lesley for a delicious afternoon tea and to Tom for taking a photograph of the group.

The next writers' group is on Friday 5th August at Valma's home and the prompt is 'The new normal'.

June

Members of the Probus Writers' Group gathered at Jenny's home.  The theme of the stories was 'a Dream Holiday'. Participants provided memories of time spent in distant locations as well as reflections on Australian and New Zealand vacations.  The narratives provoked interesting discussions as experiences were shared of travel in caravans, trains, boats and planes.  A fascinating story of a childhood home created memories for everyone.

Our next meeting is on 1st July to be hosted by Heather.  The prompt for writers is “A Promise”.

If you would like to read any of the stories written by our members, a compendium of stories and poems is now available from David Hunt as a pdf. Please contact David on [email protected]
