Writing for Pleasure – and Profit!

Would you like to see your work in print, broadcast on radio or television, performed in the theatre, or made into a film?

I joined the club to learn how to tell my story in writing, but I found more than that. I found support, friendship, inspiration, motivation and even a trophy and a book deal!
