WOWO 28 October 2021

It’s MUG OF THE MONTH time again! Reigning champion Anne Murray will be passing on the Mug to a new winner this Thursday. The competition is expected to be keen, as always!

This is our 7th session since Culture Night, and already we have enough material for 50 pages of our new Anthology 2023. Even though the deadline for the receipt of manuscripts is 1 May 2022, we ask everyone to send in stories or poems every week so that, as well as being presented on Thursday nights, the pieces can be considered for inclusion in our Anthology.

It is amazing how time flits by. Before we know it, Anthology 2023 will be chock full of stories, poems and songs. So make sure to keep writing every week!
