Saturday 8th June 2019

We held a very lively meeting which was preceded, as always, with the customary coffee and cakes/snacks, many of which were home made. Several members read their work out, which included extracts and complete pieces of prose and poetry. The themes and styles were wonderfully diverse – there was definitely something for everyone – and the standard of writing was excellent. There was a sense of achievement as it was acknowledged that we had reached the deadline for manuscript submissions to our 2019 anthology: Driftwood and everyone is looking forward to seeing it in all its glorious printed form with illustrations. We are all eagerly looking forward to the opportunity of seeing next year’s 2020 anthology go on to Amazon/Kindle.

Do you want to write or are you a burgeoning writer and looking for a supportive group to give you feedback? Come and drop in on us on a Saturday morning at Eau Gallie Library from 9.30 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. Turn right as soon as you come in the main door. We are very friendly and you will be made most welcome. We meet every other Saturday so check here for upcoming dates or on our Facebook page. We would love to see you. You can choose to read or not at any meeting and our feedback will never be hurtful or judgmental. It will be helpful and positive.

Next meeting is Saturday 22nd June 2019. We hope to see you there.

The next meeting of the Scribblers of Brevard will be held this Saturday, the 25th March, 2019 at the Eau Gallie Public Library. All members and visitors are welcome. We have refreshments and conversation (you are welcome to bring savory or sweet nibbles and we have tea and coffee) at 9.30 a.m. and then get started officially at 10.00 a.m. We aim to finish around 11.45 a..m.

If you haven’t signed up at the previous meeting, to read some of your work, but you would like to, please let this be known at the beginning of this meeting so you can be added to the list of readers. Also, please bring additional pieces to read, if you have them, because we do often have time for these.

Please look at our Facebook page for further details but check back here regularly and sign up as a subscriber because this site is still being developed and a lot of new and very interesting information will be added shortly. Contact details for committee members will also be updated for the new year.

Next Meeting – 03.09.2019

Our next meeting is Saturday, 9th March at Eau Gallie Public Library. We start with coffee, nibbles and camaraderie at 9.30 a.m. and then the meeting starts officially at 10.00 a.m. with contributions from committee members. These only usually take about ten minutes and are followed by members’ readings. Members sign up at the previous meeting to read at the next one. The format is that each reader is usually allotted about fifteen minutes but there is always flexibility given for pieces that may be shorter or longer or for anyone who didn’t put their names down to read but brings something anyway. If newcomers want to drop in there will be a very warm welcome offered to them. They can just sit and listen and enjoy the readings or they can read something of their own if time permits. No pressure is ever applied to anyone to read if they do wish to do so. Visitors can attend a couple of meetings before joining us as a member.
