Postcards

The June session of CWC featured Sharon Cook, who gave us insights into the work and thoughts of the American writer, Robert Olen Butler, as well as illustrating very effectively how postcards can be used as an entry into story writing.  In this session the  focus was on flash fiction.  It was very thought provoking and some interesting ideas emerged!  See Roger’s report for more information!
