We have had numerous successes and have enjoyed helping each other and sharing in their success.
The Group has been together for many year. We were, at the start, all beginners but over the years have gained a great deal of experience and have now produced books for children and early teens, local history, adult fiction and non fiction with plays, historical fantasy and psychology.
Our Tutor, Mrs Marion Hough, is herself a well published author having written non fiction, romance, historical sagas and children’s books. She has her own website and is the inspiration behind all our efforts.
All the books can be seen and ordered on the following pages and some are available at The Book Inn, Leigh-on-Sea.

In 2005 I entered a 3 act play in a competition called ‘Naked Talent’ for the Essex Playwrights Festival. The play entitled ‘Head in the Clouds’, came fifth.
I have a great passion for writing plays and have to date written over a dozen one-act plays, all of which have been produced successfully for my Drama Group.
Two of my plays ‘Autumn Gold’ and ‘The Landlord Cometh’ have subsequently been published.
Last year I wrote a book with a friend called Hilary Ager, entitled ‘How to write and Produce a One-act Play’ This book has been based on the experiences of running a Drama Group, Costume Design and Scenery making and all the fun that goes with it.
