A great success!

We are delighted with the way our second Literary Allsorts evening has gone.

As well as contributions from many of our own members, we were pleased to hear from well known local poets Paul Mills and Roger Kendall and representatives from Knaresborough, Harrogate and York writers’ groups. The audience of members and guests was most appreciative throughout and the bar of The Golden Lion did a roaring trade. (Yes, I know!)

Deep humiliation was in store for Maggie, our Chair. Having asked everyone else to ensure that their mobile phones were switched off, hers loudly announced the arrival of a text right in the middle of a reading. Fortunately, it was her own reading that was disrupted and gales of laughter ensued.

Thank you, Eileen and Julie, for supplying the photographs.

Our friendly group meets once a fortnight at the St Wilfred's Community Centre on Trinity Lane and is always open to new members from the Ripon area and beyond. Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
