Writers' Club

 
 

This group of creative writers meet for writing workshops, critique sessions and occasionally, chocolate. We aim to take our writing to the next level, and have enjoyed success in writing competitions - locally, nationally and even international. 

Many of our writers have had their work published in online literary journals and websites such as Poetry Box, The Anthropozine and fingers comma toes, and in print such as in the journal, Toitoi. We were very excited to hear recently that some of our writers have had their work selected to be published by Penguin Random House, in a poetry anthology by Paula Green.

Autumn leaves glide like flying squirrels in North America
they cascade like lemmings migrating off a cliff
they sail like shipwrecks

leaves pile-up like toys on the floor
they die on the ground
like lemmings at the bottom of the cliff

leaves accumulate like money in the bank
rot like an apple
in the bottom of my school bag

they decompose like dinosaurs
when the mighty meteor hit
leaves corrode
like rust on the bottom of a shabby Corolla

Death of an Autumn Leaf
