Copperwriters meeting at Val's house in Bull Bay in January 2015

Jan 15 d

"Copper Writers" has its origins in a series of excellent WEA courses. When a tutor left, members decided to "do it ourselves".

Currently there are 12 members who take turns in giving a lead and introducing a topic. Sessions include reading homework, or work in progress, and a workshop on this weeks' topic, after which follow-up is suggested.
Writers are at all stages in their endeavours and we welcome new members. Companionship and laughter as well as support and constructive criticism make "Copper Writers" special.

Meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesdays in the month and are held in homes of our members. We each pay £10 a term, which includes the cost of refreshments.

An outing in September 2015

Having decided that the group would meet in a new and interesting venue for one session each term, we drove to the National Trust property, Aberconwy House, one dismal September evening. Andrew, the director, gave us a quick tour of the house and potted history before letting us wander, absorb the atmosphere and come up with ideas for stories.
The house was quiet, except for occasional creaks. No-one there but us – and perhaps spirits from the house’s past rich history? We used torches to see our way and spoke in whispers – I’m not sure why.
We gathered after an hour to read what we’d written - each piece so different, each inspired, in some way, by our surroundings. The stories were unfinished of course, but had endless possibilities.
As we relaxed over cake and tea, we agreed Aberconwy House had worked its magic.

We're delighted to announce that one of our members, Enfys, won the Chair at the Anglesey and Gwynedd older people's eisteddfod in 2015 and again in 2016.

Outings in 2016

we visited Treborth Botanic Gardens on a sunny afternoon in June
and the Lawty's Museum in
Llanbedrgoch in September.
Both environments made us think and inspired some poems and prose.
