Tonight I visited the Seaside Writers and sat in on one of their fantastic fortnightly meetings.
Our meeting was highly engaging and opened with a poetry reading by the group's appointed poet laureate Gill.
It was great to chat with these writers not only about the opportunities they offer new and experienced writers, but also about local issues ranging from infrastructure to hospitality.
At the end of the night, the Seaside Writers provided my office with a copy of their 25th and 30th anniversary anthologies.
If you're interested in joining the seaside writers, please get in touch with my office and I can provide you with a contact person's details.
