u3a has expanded its social media by turning its In My Own Write page into an interactive Facebook group for members

Closed Facebook groups have been an important way for u3a members to connect with each other during a period when we have not been able to meet face-to-face.  After the success of the u3a Keeping In Touch group, set up in March this year, u3a has adapted the u3a In My Own Write page to an interactive Facebook group.

This group will be a place for the talented u3a writing community to share books they’ve written as well as ideas and inspiration.

Join u3a In My Own Write.

Follow us on FacebookTwitter and Instagram  [you will need accounts for each of these!]

Are you a u3a member interesting in helping with social media? We’d love to hear from you
