A new club for writers in the Mansfield area hosts its first meeting is on Wednesday June 12 and all who love putting pen to paper are being invited to attend.

The Mansfield Write Club is being organised by Wayne Swiffin, a former Chad reporter who is a journalist, public relations professional, and funeral celebrant.

Because of his work, he has been asked a number of times if he could start a writing club for people who want to meet like-minded others and to share their work.

The club is for people who write - whether that is poetry, short stories or any other kind of writing work.

He said: "I spend my time writing, and always carry with me a notebook and pen because you never know when you will need them.

"I love reading, but I think being creative and writing is something special. Whether I am writing a news story, or a life story, I am always thinking about how I can improve what I do.

"A number of people have asked me to look at starting a writing club and so now I have set one up. Hopefully, people can come along, learn from others, and share their work."
