Credo Writing Group
Credo Writing Group happens once a week around a big table and lots of cups of tea. For a couple of hours we write about our lives, invent stories and share our creative offerings with one another. The group has been writing and sharing in this way for a few years now, and has put together a booklet of poetry as well as a spoken word night. We've just set up a blog - credowritinggroup.wordpress.com - and hope to work with some actors to perform our written monologues. We like this group because it allows us to be creative, to hone our writing skills, and to turn our lives into art.
Here are some recent examples of our work:
Lightening slapped the old tin roof, focussing the object of my new painting.
My skin began to quiver.
Poor baby sister.
I’m glad you’re not part of the haze of time and memory.
Eager to see what the spirit of the new day says,
When I feel so different from them,
Treating each other so bad.
I have to have the courage to articulate who I am.
Who am I?
14/11/13 - On 'I Have a Dream'
Man of My Dreams - Mia V
God-fearing, provider and friend.
My lover until the end.
Oh, how I can't wait to meet this person.
Wishing - James M
I wish I had a place to be, in love
With her, a face to see, a dove
Whose grace will set me free – enough!
To Have My Life as My Own - Sash SB
To have my life as my own, not imposed on me by Centrelink and no dollars,
To own a farm in the country with a boyfriend and a fireplace toasting marshmellows,
To buy wine from wine clubs to celebrate, and not drink miserably.
It would be great - Edith B
It would be great to see animals rule the world
And horses dance in the river.
Apples - Sash SB
An apple a day always appeases,
as ailments and doctor aflee
Elephant - Edith B
The elephant treads down the earth in Africa,
heavily and free.
God - James B
Is god, is good, she
Whispers love into my ear
burnt from the sunshine.
Passion - Susan F
A passionate person
lives for the pain of possible poetry.
Tickly tigers - Paul F
Tickly tigers take
tripping teddy-bears to train tunnels.
