Writers getting creative with pub tables

The Flying Ducks met in Beckwithshaw: first Thursday of the month, a date I usually have to miss through work commitments. Spring sunshine, masses of crocuses making Harrogate look very Spring-like. It was even quite warm out of the wind, but the breeze when it hit was an icy reminder of why there is still unmelted snow on the verges.

I first attended these meetings years ago when they were held at Harlow Carr on the outskirts of Harrogate. From those days many of the same faces remain and there are as many new ones. And still a good attendance, about two dozen this time. It’s quite a logistical challenge getting that many people round a table in a pub, but being a creative group we find creative ways to manage it. I was sitting in the wrong place for taking photos, but there’s a bad one above anyway. There’s a better photo here on Facebook.


  1. Glad you enjoyed it. Sorry I couldn't be there.

    New blog format? I like it!

  2. Ooh, thank you ref the new format - both for liking it and also for noticing. You're the first to do either!

  3. It was a most inspiring meeting and great to catch up with everyone. Looking forward to our next in May.
