  • London Writers Needed

    Thursday, 9th July 2015 at 5:15pm - 6:45pm
    Location: Stratford Advisory Centre

    Hi all,

    Wondering if you anyone might be able to help.

    I've been working with George Fuller who is a member of Newham Writers - he inspired the film I'm working on which is about peoples experiences of being blacklisted for union involvement.  

    Next Thursday 9th July I'm going to be filming him reading a piece he wrote on his experience of blacklisting and want to set it up in a writers group setting.  So I'm looking for a small group who will be willing to join.

    Roger Mills and a friend of his have agreed to come - might anyone else be interested to join?  Or can you think of anyone who might?  They would just need to treat it like a normal writing group - and might want to read or just give feedback to others.

    It will take place at Stratford Advisory Centre, 5.15 - 6.45pm.  I can cover travel costs.

    The film will be show at a gallery in Edinburgh and at a some Union meeting rooms across the UK.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated!!
