Whitwick & District U3A - Fun with Words


We are W&D's newest group, formed during the Covid pandemic. We are interested in anything to do with words - story or poetry writing, alliteration, onomatapoeia, similes, the origin of words, collective nouns - there's endless possibilities. There'll be a monthly challenge, set by any one of the group members. And a chance to comment on what's been presented, but always in a positive way. For now, we'll be meeting via a monthly email session.

Please note that some groups are still assessing how they will operate and as such some physical group meetings will still be either limited or suspended.

BUT the group is meeting via email

For November our challenge is to compose a haiku. These are the Japanese inspired, structured 3 line pieces of writing. The lines contain 5,7 and 5 syllables. They usually are about nature or the seasons and each word has to really earn its place in such a short piece of writing. We share our work via e-mail so no face to face meetings at present. New members would be very welcome.
