24 April Life Writing Readings

Members read out their entries to the life writing competition. The fascinating accounts covered decades and spanned continents. We heard amusing anecdotes about much loved parents and grandparents, and stories passed down through generation, possibly embellished along the way. We enjoyed autobiographical accounts. These included tales of childhood chronicled through accidents, illnesses and medical treatments. We also heard an interesting tale of one boy’s efforts to raise money for a ski trip by working in a fizzy drinks factory. We heard reflections of consciousness and happiness made during a slightly booze-filled trip around Hastings and considered death and its portrayal in the media. Another fun meeting showcasing the diverse styles of our very creative members.
