Ripples welcomes writers
In our summer editions we are launching a new section for local writers who would like to see their work published in print and on the Web at www.ripplesmag.co.uk. Rippling Yarns begins in our July/August editions.
Ian Westlake of Fairford’s U3A Creative Writing group has got the wagon rolling:
In the deep seated world of Betterton's Close
In what was the west edge of Fairford
A local group of budding writers sat.
Writers block? What should they do next?
One from East End got her Ripples out
And with a flourish, slapped it down.
'We could do something for that' she said.
The group was struck dumb and
A long silence followed, except for the sound
Of distant mixers, drills and hammers.
'They want creative writers in two weeks'
No one spoke. They stared out of the window.
A crane swung a load of half brick fears
And dumped them out of sight.
