The next meeting of Writers of Picton will be on Monday 3 April, 11am at Picton Library. The writing topic is 200 – 400 words on the topic ‘something for nothing’.

To add another dimension to the meeting a piece of prose by an established writer has been chosen for discussion on the style of writing. It is ‘The Wish Child’ by Catherine Chidgey, one of the finalists in the 2017 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards. It is hoped that the page will appear on the Writers of Marlborough website http://www.writersofmarlborough.co.nz/ for people to print off and read before the meeting.

Everyone is welcome to listen or participate. If you are interested in coming along, contact Julie Kennedy for more information at kennedyjk@xtra.co.nz, 03-573 8281.
