The Free Writers of Southbank

Little information of this short-lived group. Information came to me in 1987 via Community Arts Middlesbrough. It was organised by Joy Lorraine who at the time was part of the Horden Group in County Durham whom we had visited with the Teesside Writers Workshop. Joy was in the Federation of Worker Writers. IA note in Outlet No 6 Dec 1987 read - " Stop Press - Staring soon - a new writers group for Women run by Joy Lorraine.The first meeting is on Thursday 21st January at the Pavilion, Esk St. North Ormesby, Middlesbrough. The New Group is called 'Free Writers' and begins at 7,30pm. Even if you have never written, you are urged to come along and try your hand in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere. For further details contact Community Arts Middlesbrough - Middlesbrough 225290.
