This is a well-established, relaxed class that always like to encourage new members to join us. Meetings are held on Monday mornings at the Harrow Arts Centre. You can choose any medium you like - the way you express yourself is up to you: personal reminiscences, articles, poetry, short stories, arts reviews... It doesn't matter what it is, just get writing. Feel free to write as much or as little as you want. Even if you've never tried it before, you'll find the more you write, the easier it gets and the better you'll become. You'll find it enjoyable and inspiring. Currently classes are held alternately at HAC and on Zoom.
Group Leader - Dinah Monnickendam
Literary Discussion Group 1
This group meets fortnightly on Wednesday mornings from 10.30 to 12 at a member's home. We choose books following a theme chosen by consensus - historical, genre, gender, geography etc . Members take turns to present a book, if willing, with much support from the others. Each book usually covers two sessions.
We have no leader but are a self supporting group. Come and try us.
Group Leader - Anne Gerrard
Literary Discussion 2
We are a small group which currently meets fortnightly on Zoom. We read classic novels for enjoyment, and we analyse them and find parallels in our lives today. In recent years we have studied Jane Eyre, A Christmas Carol and The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. We are currently reading Emma by Jane Austen. New members are very welcome.
Group Leaders: Jean Kenton & Alison Tanna

Group Leader - Judy Peters
Meets once a month at the Harrow Arts Centre on a Thursday afternoon. The playreading group enjoys a new script each month, purely for entertainment, it is not a literature lesson. No preparation needed, just sight reading with every person playing a different character. Plays vary from whodunnits and thrillers to farces
Group Leader - Vivienne Gould
