Ripon Writers’ Group was well represented over the weekend.
David McAndrew and Elizabeth Spearman were among the judges for the Festival Competition and two members, Carol Mayer and Maggie Cobbett, were present at the launch to read poems of theirs that had been chosen for this year’s Anthology, ‘The Wheel Turns’. (Copies are available from The Ripon Bookshop on Westgate.)
(Apologies for the poor quality of this photo. A better one of Carol will follow.)
On Sunday afternoon, we had our own session at Thorpe Prebend House, chaired by Sheila Whitfield and Kate Swann. Several members read their own work and, in several cases, poems submitted by those unable to be present. Please click on the images below to see the participants. All were well received by a small but appreciative audience.
