Welcome to Felixstowe Scribblers

Sunday, December 02, 2007


Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday 4th December in the Café Libra at the Library at 7.30 pm.

The open themed 1,500 word homework assignment will be read by Liliane and Stephen whilst the 500 word assignment for the rest of us is "ABSENT FRIENDS".

Talking of which, we have heard from Les who is currently away 'dog sitting' in Kessingland and have posted his letter on our weblog at http://nar8or.blogspot.com/. Les hopes to come along to our social at the Grosvenor in January and to a meeting or two in the New Year.

We have also heard from Ally who missed the last meeting as she was out choosing her birthday presents, two kittens that are now the centre of attraction in her new home. Ally will be missing again on Tuesday as the date clashes with her works Christmas meal, but will be back soon!

Our AGM forms the first meeting of the New Year so, after a relatively quiet year, Felixstowe Scribblers would like to receive any items that you would like to be included on the agenda, and also confirmation from committee members that they wish to continue serving.

A packed house recently savoured the warm and friendly atmosphere at Starbucks in Ipswich on an evening when many writers shared their stories and poetry. Dave, representing Felixstowe Scribblers, read out "Homeward Bound" a work that originated through the group's homework assignments. The evening was testament to the hard work of the Ip-Art team who organised a throughly enjoyable evening when old friends met up and new friends were made during the event. Another WRITERS’ CAFÉ is being planned for March 2008 along with two writers' workshops and a short story competition later in the year.

The Online Scribblers competition dedicated to our Jack Wilkinson has now closed and online voting is now taking place so if you'd like to read the entries and vote for your favourites then go to http://onlinescribblers.com

Hope to see you all on Tuesday so, until then,

Keep Scribbling,
