Converge Creative Writing


By Timothy Wynn-Werninck

Wandering, sauntering. You do not necessarily know where you are going but it is a good way to relax. You drift maybe there is time to come up with solutions to problems. It is a way of releasing the pressures of the day.

The Telephone Box

By Timothy Wynn-Werninck

It was a dark and stormy night. The Rain beat against the Box. The box was strong though, and had the GPO crown on the top. Unlike it city cousins it was the pride of the community and Farmer Giles painted it every year in post office red.

The flocked wallpaper and the large worsted rug had their true colours stolen through wear and tear and too much sunlight. In front of the empty hearth and dominating the room is a brown leather chesterfield, big enough to seat four comfortably. Continue reading “The Room”

The Street Party Project

The Street Party Project took as its starting point images of different streets. We then wrote about the people we thought might live there, and then constructed stories about what happened when the residents decided to throw a charity street party. Continue reading “The Street Party Project”
