Creative Writing

We have a creative writing group that meets 9.00 am – 12.00 noon every Friday at The Jubilee Community Centre, Civic Precinct, Alfred Street, Mackay, and you’ll learn all the ins and outs of writing. Members have, in the past, had books published. We are a self-help group and do not have actual tutors.

We give every member a chance to choose the subject for two weeks. A very pleasant three hours on Friday morning from 9 to 12.00 noon.
It never ceases to amaze, the variation and often the similarities in the presented subject. Our small activity that follows the reading of the contributions of the members, promises to be diverse and interesting.

If you are unwell – stay home! Please remember to sanitize and keep safe distancing during COVID

Attached is a poem from Liz Springall. As we have been having a break and returned on 23rd of this month, our project has been to write an animal story or poem. Tina is working hard on our year book in the form of a photo book with two submissions from each of our members. From the previews, it should be great and a worthy example of our work to display at the Give if a Go Day next year. We will continue until the first week in December when we will be having our yearly break up, get together, returning in February 2022. My goodness how time flies when you are immersed in the world of imagination and documenting exciting adventures which address the given topic. We welcome anyone who wants to join our group, or just sit in and enjoy our diverse and interesting stories.

A Poem from my heart
A distant dream of faded images
Drifts across the years like mists across the mountains and glens of our beginning.
It was not our Time then,
The bells that sounded over the town as we met in the summer of our innocence,
Sounded a finale to our days,
Days of discoveries, dating, Dylan cafes and coke.
And then…..Life happened
10 thousand miles and 10 thousand days
New places new faces, new world.
Did we know then? Did it show then?
That thread that bound from then till now?
“Cast your dancing spell my way, I promise to go wandering”
Said Dylan.
And we did, yes we did.
