About This Author

Northumbria Region u3a Creative Writers are a group of u3a members. The Group has 14 members from Alnwick u3a, Northumberland to Saltburn u3a, North Yorkshire and many u3as in between. We started meeting on Zoom during the pandemic and continue to do so every month, with occasional face to face social/learning events. In March 2022 we decided to publish a book of short stories and poems. This experience was a huge learning curve, especially organising the publishing element ourselves. Every member has contributed in some way to the stories or poems. Some members were novices when they joined the group and some members already had works published. The moto of u3a is 'for the members, by the members', so we all help each other learn. If any money is raised from the publication of 'Leafing Through the Seasons' then a workshop will be organised for all 12 Creative Writing Groups in the Northumbria Region. A possible 100 members could attend. The strapline of u3a is 'Learn, Laugh, Live. For more information about u3a The photo is of some of the members in June 2022 visiting 'The Word', the National Centre for the Written Word in South Shields, Tyne and Wear.
