All Change at Gorey Writers

Hi everyone,
It has been all-change at Gorey Writers this year.
Due to the large number of writers attending meetings, it was decided to split into two groups - poetry and prose.
Our meeting place has changed too, but in view of the lock-down throughout the country, we have been unable to meet face-to-face and so everything is on hold.
When we are in a position to meet again we will let you know.
In the meantime, stay connected through Whatsapp, or whatever way is good for you.

Stay Safe
