Network News: North west, Cumbria

By Marion Brown

Our recently formed SCWBI Cumbria group had an excellent first 'official' meeting on the 28th of March in Castle Street Community Centre in Kendal. Six of us spent a very valuable three hours critiquing and discussing our work with the occasional cup of coffee and very tasty donated biscuits from Deb to keep us going.
Castle Street Community Centre 
Our work ranged from 'just started' pieces to fully completed drafts with a truly diverse range of target age groups and genres. 
We plan to meet  on a  monthly basis in Kendal and three other local members are hoping to come along next time. All of us agreed meeting regularly and getting to know each other's work in depth will really help us give and receive the very constructive and useful feedback. Please get in touch with Marion Brown via the SCWBI NW Network email address or message Marion via FB if you live in or near Cumbria and are interested in joining the group.

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
