On today's show we chatted with Mark Clemenson of the Verulam Writers' Circle. The group meets each Wednesday, alternating between St Michael's Church Hall and a local public house. The purpose of the group is to help local writers by critiquing their work and providing enjoyable workshops. They also host talks from outside speakers and discuss all writing related matters from what to write though to how to get published.

AND HERE IS WHERE TO FIND SOME OF OUR MEMBERS’ WRITING
Libertine – by Sandra Norval
Libertine, an angel and Hugo, a vampire, live in the clubs, squats and alleyways of the late 80's London Rock and Goth scene. The story takes a really dark turn very early on and Libertine will learn that she was never really all alone - neither was Hugo...
Mrs Darcy Meets the Aliens – by Jonathan Pinnock
Mrs Darcy vs The Aliens is a slightly demented sequel to Pride and Prejudice
The serial was launched on Jane Austen's birthday in 2009, and new episodes will be published twice-weekly, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
