Work in progress by GSV Writers



One of our GSV members, Martin Playne (see his 'Two Squatters'  book in the GSV Library), is researching medical training in the 1700s and 1800s for his new book, to establish how his subjects may have become doctors. You can read about his research progress at 'Marty Playne Publishing' (https://mplayne.wordpress.com). The GSV Writers will no doubt be dissecting Martin's writing on this topic some time in the future.

Don't let your past be bygones!

GSV Writers Group will this week discuss two draft articles - a short memoir of a 17 year-old working in Clew Bay, Ireland, 1958, and a short history of a Melbourne suburban cinema. If you are interested in capturing part of your own family-history, join GSV and its Writers Discussion Group.

Next week on the first Wednesday of the month the GSV Writers will again be reviewing written pieces that are being worked on by members. The group offers its members advice and suggestions covering any aspects, from readability, meaning and structure to editing, punctuation and spelling. Always useful to have other eyes! The Group is only available as part of GSV Membership.
