This week we meet another relatively new member of Chudleigh Writers’ Circle. Steve Male is certainly the most far-flung of our members, travelling half way across the county each month to attend meetings. He first made contact with the group via mutual connections at Swanwick Writers Summer School. Continue reading

In February 2017 Chudleigh Writer, Anne Chinneck, was due to take a cruise up the coast of Norway. Various obstacles stood in her way at the time, and the trip was postponed for two years, finally taking place earlier this year. Today she brings us a flavour of her travels. Continue reading
