- How to find us
The Literary Society was started by Fiona Owen in 1995. Charles Parry-Jones took over in 2000, and he writes:
“Over the years a nucleus of perhaps ten to fifteen of us have grown to be familiar with each other’s work, be it poetry or prose. Meeting fortnightly, either on a Friday lunchtime for two hours or on a Saturday for longer, a recognized writer is booked to give a reading and/or a workshop in creative writing. Discussion continues in the excellent restaurant, which has the feeling of a college refectory. The programme’s continuity and the ambience of the former chapel have been attractive, and have allowed members to grow in stature as writers.”
Fiona Owen resumed directorship when Charles Parry-Jones sadly passed away.
