Bridgend Writers' Circle Programme for 2020/2021

Due to the continuing uncertainty regarding meeting face to face, the Committee have decided to continue with the monthly meeting via the Zoom platform. The Committee also decided at the AGM to abandon all competitions, apart from the Saviker for the time being, due to the ongoing situation.

However, to keep the group productive we are introducing a monthly ‘prompt’ (see below). Please restrict your writings to a maximum of 1200 words. Naturally, we’d like as many members new and old to partake. However should you not wish to do so in person, via Zoom, just email your writing to and the Chair will appoint someone to read on your behalf. We shall as always critique or make suggestions on use of subject matter etc…


Story: Crime Story 1600-2000 words; Memoir: My First days at School 500-800 words;

Poetry: Own Choice Max 36 lines. To be ready for July 2021.


For next month, we would like you to prepare a Monologue, any subject, not longer than 6 minutes maximum.

Readings of the Monologues.

In the thirties, Londoners going to Southend consumed loads of them from the shellfish stalls. Criminal gangs smuggle Pearls, I cannot stand the things. You have to swallow chew then swallow again. I am not a shellfish person. They make me think of the East coast and mud.   I am sure your inventive mind will come up with a story. They are reasonable in batter. I’ve had them in Australia.”
