Mrs Bentley provides stimulus to help budding writers with ideas for their writing. A normal afternoon involves a quick brain dump to clear people’s minds, followed by stimulus material, which can range from pictures to songs, or even people’s shoes as happened one afternoon. Then the writing happens. For over 30 minutes, the only sound in the room is the scratching of pens and the silent whirring of minds.
Once this is done, sharing and critiquing occurs, where people can share what they’ve created, and be given constructive criticism to improve their writing. It is often amazing, what the young writers can get on to paper in half an hour. Sometimes the room is sent into uncontrollable fits of laughter, others into absolute silence and awe.
Writers Club occurs every week on Friday afternoon during the year after school in M16.
Writers club also has an annual camp and occasional excursions to immerse writers in a range of experiences.
