This friendly, informal and inclusive writing group based in Mossley, meets every third Tuesday of the month at The Vale, 7:30-9:30pm. A typical Mossley Writers get-together includes writing together, using fun and thought-provoking writing exercises, share our works in progress whatever they might be: short stories, poems, extracts from novels, plays, memoirs, critiquing members’ work and of course writing related chat with tea and biscuits! Mossley Writers welcome all kinds of writers, at all stages of their career.
You may also be interested in The Tameside WordShop, a year-long programme of free writing workshops for Tameside writers. Over the forthcoming year, The Tameside WordShop at Tameside Libraries will host monthly writing workshops with established writers working in all different forms and genres. And as a Tameside resident, you’re invited! From playwriting, the novel, short story writing, and poetry, to writing for children, flash fiction and memoir, there will be something to satisfy every creative itch. You might be an established writer with a stack of publications or someone that has never put pen to paper – all are welcome.
It was a special treat that this super talented group came on board to deliver two participatory workshops for the Up Our Street Celebration Day. Wordsmith Pat Baker hosted a reminiscence session at Sweet Vintage, where participants were asked to write about their memories of the high street in Mossley, their favourite places and why they love the town.
And multi-talented artist Mel Roberts hosted the ‘Chalk Walk’ with an invitation to make your mark and express yourself in words or images to transform an uninspiring section of Stamford Road into a river of colour with a range of beautiful chalk colours and brighten up our town!
