JERSEY WRITERS SOCIAL GROUP: Dreena Collins

I am fortunate enough to be a member of the Jersey Writer’s Social Group. We meet once a week to toss ideas around and get friendly feedback from other members on our own writing. We all share a love of writing and there is nothing quite like hanging out with like-minded people. We also share the same ambition, to see our work in print. Some of our members have already been published and Dreena Collins is one of them.

Writing No-go Areas: Politics, Religion, and Sex

I've learned by experience that one misconstrued adjective about a leading politician, even in jest, leads to the loss of hundreds of  Social Media followers.  And where would we be without our Social Media friends?

As Brexit looms, hard or soft, who knows? It is very tempting to let rip about how I feel about the UK leaving the EU.  I live in Jersey, Channel Islands, our rock nestles off the coast of mighty France.  So close you can almost smell the freshly baked croissants.  If I shout, bon matin tout le monde from our north coast, I can expect to hear a rallying cry of bonjour mon ami echoing back across the 14 mile stretch of La Manche (English Channel) that separates us.  Jersey may not be politically entwined with the UK, but I feel we are bracing ourselves for less of the bon accord we have so enjoyed for many years.
