Creative Writing (WriterPals)
Creative Writing (WriterPals) is a discussion group that puts-in-practice – it is not a formal lesson.
We meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month (during school term) at Club Lambton – from 1pm to 2:30 pm.
ASCCA (Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association) are holding a creative writing competition again this year.

We are WriterPals – we help each other with Creative Writing.
ComputerPals for Seniors – Newcastle Inc. has a sub-group of members interested in Creative Writing and we are “WriterPals”. We have a lot of fun reading our stories to ‘the others’ and sharing positive critique and generally helping one another. You must be a financial member of ComputerPals. Interested? You will be very welcome to come, see what we do, and join in the fun.
Our challenges are many and varied. You can write on any topic you like. As always, turn your imagination loose and see where it leads you.
Everyone has a story in them – everyone can write ! YES, YOU CAN!
We encourage you to have a go, even if you haven’t tried before.
