From the Weekly News (Essex) Thursday October 11, 2007
WRITERS GET THEIR GONGS
Brentwood Writers' Circle is going from strength to strength and is now the foremost writing club in the South-East.
It celebrated its 66th birthday in May and over the years, its members have enjoyed many successes in the publishing world.
The circle meets monthly in the Fairview Drama room at the Ursuline Convent, Queens Road, Brentwood. The new chairman is Ena Love.
Recently, three members - Janet Cameron, Sylvia Kent and Dorothy Organ - were placed first, third and fifth in the International Monologue Writing Competition sponsored by the Society of Women Writers and Journalists. The magnificent David Lloyd George Room at the National Liberal Club in Westminster was the venue for a superb lunch on thursday, where the writers were awarded their prizes by the competition judge, Simon Brett.
Princess Michael of Kent was the guest speaker and at least a dozen Brentwood Writers' Circle members were there to meet the pair and their fellow society members.
