Her tendency (even though she always hated the stuff) is towards writing poetry. She is a member of Nottingham Writers’ Studio, where she is on the board as the Project Delivery Coordinator and is the Secretary of the Nottingham Poetry Society. I’m on the steering committees for theNottingham Festival of Words and the Beeston Poets.
