Now, how about this for a commendation?  Not only has Bob won £100 in the Koestler Trust 2018 Poetry contest, he also received the following letter from their reviewer :
  “I was so moved by reading your ‘sonnets’ that even as I write this I am struggling to think of what to say that does justice to how beautiful they were. The way that you have used the sonnet form to express such moments of feeling, emotion, contemplation and memory in your life is truly powerful and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to have read these. You certainly have a way of articulating that gives the reader an easy access to visualise the meaning and essence of your poems.
You can read three of Bob’s sonnets here


BRIGHTON NIGHTWRITERS is a creative writing group that meets once a week to read and discuss members’ work in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.  We have been meeting continuously since 1988.

Some members are published, some just write for pleasure and some are new to creative writing. Not everyone attends every week, but – whatever our age or walk of life – we all enjoy sharing our stories, poetry and plays with others.

Brighton NightWriters meets in the Duke of Wellington pub in Upper Gloucester Road, every Wednesday at 7.30pm. (BUT see Latest News above for monthly exception.)
