Paul Stuart

12th August 2020 by admin

It is with deep regret and sadness that we mourn the passing of Guild member Paul Stuart. Paul was a very bright, talented and dedicated writer and artist. He worked hard at his craft, had a brilliant sense of humour and would regularly engage people in lively conversations and debates.

Paul was extremely well-liked and will be sorely missed by his friends in the Guild. Paul was a terrific addition to the writing group team, always supportive, patient and had a wonderful sense of humour. He’ll be really missed.

Paul had a distinctive voice on and off the page. He wrote in every genre, he was so talented he could create different worlds, unfortunately he left this one too soon. Paul was loved by everyone in the group and will be sadly missed.

Paul Stuart was such an important member of the group when I was there. He was everything that a creative group needs in its members. He was enthusiastic, really inclusive and very adept at reading the room. He knew how to put new members at their ease and he also was very good at dispelling tension. And, he was funny. Very funny. In summary, Paul was sound. Paul was also a talented writer with an abundance of original ideas. He was great at pitching and I still smile when I think of Paul leaning over the table and pointing an index finger in the air to begin a pitch with the phrase ‘Picture this …’ It wasn’t until Paul left the group that I realised what a natural, unassuming leader he had been. I feel very lucky that there was a time in my life when, every second Thursday, I got to sit in a room with Paul for a couple of hours and dream.
