• Writing at The Hope Cafe on Wednesday 15th of July

    We had a few new people this week, and a really enjoyable session. I felt that our sense of each other goes a bit deeper whenever we meet.I love this group and this cafe, for it’s welcoming and positive vibe. I was really pleased for Jane who has the new cafe facilitator job.She welcomed me on my first time here, and she is so nice, calm, friendly- good luck in her new role!

    I have been giving out this Wee Read website to everyone, so you can have the web links to all poems or stories we read.

    This is so that we keep friendly copyright relations for the author.

    It was really great to hear people joining in with whatever they wrote, sharing it with everybody else.Thanks to all for participating, and roll on next Wednesday!

    It’s still a small group, and everyone is welcome to join, at 2-3.30 pm every Wednesday.



Born in 1958 and brought up in Blantyre in a family of seven. Moved to Glasgow in 1976 and stayed until 2012. Then I moved back to Hamilton where I had attended secondary school, for 4 years. Home is now Glasgow, again, I am a weegie through 'n through. I have two daughters, and four granddaughters who all light up my life. My experience of working with poetry, writing, reading and so on is from my childhood. One of my poems was published in a school magazine when I was 12. I am now trying to publish my first grown-up booklet of poems within the next year or so. I trained and studied to become a librarian from 1977. It was the one job I wanted since reading in Hamilton Townhouse Library in the early 1970's!I watched the staff and thought, I'd like to work here... Bibliotherapy came into my life in 2007, at Glasgow Women's Library.
