500 Word Challenge with Mary Burnham


Are you a prospective writer who itches to put pen to paper but has never got around to it?

Do you look for inspiration to write and find you haven’t a clue where to start?

Have you ever thought about writing a short story, putting your memories down for future generations, or getting started on a novel?


If the answer is yes to any of the above then join us in this simple challenge that will help to get you on the road to writing. You can be a complete novice, or a competent wordsmith as the challenge is there for everyone and the only person who sets the goals will be you.


Each month we’ll have a prompt word and your challenge will be to write 500 words with that in mind. It can be about you and your family, a personalised account; it can be completely inventive and imaginative, it can be factual as in a report of an event or an occasion; it could even be an epic poem, rhyming or not, that uses words in a completely different way.  You choose!


We’ll meet and discuss on the second Wednesday of each month at 7.30 on Zoom and there will be a facility to upload your work to a protected site so that we can all read and enjoy. With useful tips and plenty of encouragement from our moderator, Mary Burnham, you should be well on your way to writing success in whatever genre you choose.
