If you love writing, love words, and want to have fun; if you want to express yourself in a poem or prose, or just in a few lines that might develop into something longer; or if you just want to make things up, join our writing group led by Harriet Grace.
The class look at different aspects of writing and what makes good writing, talk about it, read a poem or piece of prose, or are inspired by something that has happened to one of them. They do lots of writing in class and there is homework for those who want it, and always encouragement. Harriet’s ethos is that writing of any sort helps us to understand our world and live in it more vividly.
Harriet has lived in Kew with her family for many years and loves Kew and its community.
She has an MA Distinction in Creative Writing and has published a novel, which was short-listed for an award, and has just completed another novel and hoping to find a publisher. She has had poems and family history articles published and writes regularly for The Link, a local church magazine.
She has combined writing with her role as a career counsellor working with small groups or one-to-one in a non-judgmental, facilitative way to help people to achieve their potential, and uses these skills to work with writers. She has been part of many writing groups and thinks that stories, in all their myriad and glorious forms, make the world go round.
