New Sidmouth writing group success

THE first meeting of the Sidmouth Creative Writing Group was a resounding success according to its organiser.

THE first meeting of the Sidmouth Creative Writing Group was a 'resounding success' according to its organiser.

Around 20 people, including children, turned up to the session, held at Twyford House last Friday.

Organiser Valerie Bettag, who has received a lot of positive feedback so far, said: "I have always suspected that there was a huge amount of writing talent in Sidmouth.

"The session started with a couple of light-hearted writing exercises to help everyone to just relax and have a go at creative writing.

"There was absolutely no pressure to read aloud although writers could do so if they wished. The group proved to be a lively and enthusiastic bunch!"

The aim of the group is to meet up once a month for support and encouragement as well as to have fun.
