The Writers’ Reading group: The reading group with a difference
The Writers’ Reading group is what it says on the tin, a creative hybrid of a writing and a reading group. Led by the Hearth Centre’s artistic director and published writer, Polly Wright, the group selects novels, short stories and plays which will be great models for writing.
Past choices have included Sathnam Sanghera’s Marriage Material and Ali Smith’s How to be Both. Initial sessions spend time discussing the chosen book followed by two sessions dedicated to giving feedback to participants’ written responses to the writers’ subject and style.
This summer term we will be reading Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina and responding to the themes of adultery, passion and the Russian aristocracy in our own writing!
