Thursday 27th August at 7.30pm – Guest Speaker Les Jones
Our next meeting will be a Zoom presentation by Les Jones, the creator and sole producer of Elsie Magazine. Les describes Elsie as a sumptuous, full colour treat-orama of all things photographic, typographic and designographic (is that a word?). There are just 1,000 copies of each issue of Elsie and each issue features bespoke elements that make your copy just a bit more personal. There’s no advertising in Elsie Magazine, which means there’s no external influence on what goes inside. And what goes inside is a visual cornucopia of stuff that inspires, intrigues and excites him. Les has fascinating approaches to art and design, and does a variety of projects. He is good fun to listen to. More about Les and Elsie Magazine can be seen at www.elsiemagazine.com .

Droitwich Arts Network sponsors High School Creative Writing Award
For the second year, Droitwich Arts Network has sponsored the High School Creative Writing Award, and this year’s winner is Grace Rogers in year 12. Grace will receive the Karen Moore Trophy and a cash prize of £100 kindly donated by Droitwich Arts Network. The accolade was named after Karen Moore who was the school’s deputy head for many years. This year, students were given the title ‘The world is on fire’ which they could interpret as they saw fit. Helen said: “Droitwich Arts Network is delighted to be supporting this creative writing competition. It is has been a joy to judge such high quality writing.’
Due to government restrictions the committee has decided hold meetings online using Zoom. A simple guide to using Zoom has been sent to all members and can be found in the Members’ Area of this website. If you are unsure about how to use Zoom, contact any member of the committee.
