Once in each of the year’s three terms Mungrisdale Writers are invited to choose a single, short, favourite piece of writing (ie, not a chapter or two of one’s latest novel!) penned in the last term, for sharing in turn. The second element of these gatherings will involve our getting ‘in the mood’ – perhaps by listening to a beautiful piece of music, or taking a short walk outside, followed by the writing of a new short piece that may or may not be shared. There’ll then be an opportunity to invite feedback from fellow writers that will be offered along the usual broadly agreed lines for critique (see iii above). With plenty of time for coffee, cake and catch up, these sessions will allow opportunities for sharing and celebrating all that we’re learning in the main, tutored, sessions of each term. The forthcoming Read & Share will be from 10.30-1.30 on the 20th April 2017.
