It was to be just another routine manuscript meeting for Eastwood Writers Group at Brinsley Parish Hall; until that is, Councillor Keith Longdon turned up with a pleasant and most timely surprise. Previously, group member David Page (author Harry Riley) had suggested a printed magazine to showcase the member’s work. This would be made up of four editions per year and would be inclusive of other local writers and poets from Eastwood, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Having been given the go ahead to edit a pilot-run he approached Councillor Longdon for possible sponsorship to get the ‘WriteOn’ magazine off the ground.
