We are the Durham University Creative Writing Society! We meet every Tuesday in ER155 for writing, reviewing work and miscellaneous sessions. We also hold regular events, such as socials and writing events. We also publish an annual anthology of the work that members of the society have written throughout the year. This is a fantastic opportunity to get some experience with what it's like to actually be published and is a great memento of the year. Current Exec (2013/14) President: Katie Lumsden Secretary: Kristin Farrants Treasurer: Kalil Copley Events Coordinator: James Wardlaw (interim Events Coordinator: Alex Hill) Send us an email at creative.writing@durham.ac.uk to get on our mailing list!

Some highlights from the DUCWS picnic limerick game: There once was a flaming goose, who met with a famous moose. The moose drank her beer, then stabbed her with a spear, because he was rather a douche. There was a young moose called Clive, who barely could manage to jive. His foxtrot was smooth, so he got on his grove, and went for a wondrous nose-dive. There once was a blimp in the sky. It would fly amazingly high. The captain was gay, loved to practise ballet, but was so bad his whole crew did cry. When plotting for world domination, it’s poor form to take a vacation. While some time in the sun can be rather fun, you really should be taking over nations. There was once a lady called Bill, who fed herself mainly on krill. It didn’t taste good. Against it she stood – so she turned mad and started to kill… There once was a feather-brained man, whose best friend was sadly a clam. Though they tried to stay friends, he came down with the bends, and ate him in a sandwich with ham.

Don't forget we've changed rooms for the exam period: we'll be in CM105 on the science site at the usual time of 7:30. We'll be meeting outside the Bill Bryson library at 7:20 for those who don't usually frequent the science site. Come along for prompt sessions to unleash your creativity and have a bit of a break from revision.

IMPORTANT NOTICE!!! THE SESSION TODAY IS CANCELLED! Really sorry for the short notice guys, and the lack of e-mail (the mailing list doesn't seem to be working for us at the moment), but we're going to have to cancel today's meeting - none of the exec can actually make it, and due to some crossed wires we didn't realise this until yesterday! Please help us by spreading the word if you know someone who's interested in coming but don't have fb/haven't liked this page. Sorry again, and we'll (hopefully!) see some of you next week! The Exec (Katie, Kristin, Kalil, James, and Alex)
