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.
