Group Updates:
There were a number of names building up wanting to attend the Memoir Writing Course, so Jean Akers decided to have a go at running it by email. Six brave souls were willing to give it a try. They were keen and what's more no-one had anything else on! Funny, that. "My empty diary welcomed an entry," wrote one prospective writer. It was trickier than they thought, by email, but they persevered, writing great memoirs and eventually five finished the six-session course. Four were able to meet on Zoom for the last two sessions and once the group were at Level 2, to meet in person!
