On the lookout for writers

A local creative writing group is on the lookout for Mearns writers to join them.

Mearns Writers is seeking new members to join their ranks and whether you write poetry, drama or are simply interested in improving your writing, the group can help.

The group welcomes new and practising writers with a support network to help promote creative writing of all kinds.

Mearns Writers meet in Bervie Primary School on Mondays and at Stonehaven Community Centre on Thursdays, from 7pm to 9pm both nights.

The main aim of the sessions is to provide each other with helpful and constructive feedback in an atmosphere that is relaxed and friendly. Stimuli for further writing are suggested at each meeting although the most illuminating feature of these is often the lively informal discussion between members.

The group has produced anthologies of its work and performed work publicly, and organises regular workshops with guest writers and visits to literary events.
