Next Meeting: Tuesday, December 10!!



The Writers Workshop of the Mountain Empire Creative Arts Council (MECAC) will meet on Tuesday, December 10 in the Community Room of the Pine Valley Library starting at 7:00 PM. Most meetings last about 90 minutes. 

Please bring 6-8 copies of a piece of writing to share and be workshopped. Please keep prose below 1500 words or bring one poem--two if they are brief. 

We will read our work aloud as the group follows along, marking copies and making comments and suggestions. We are a supportive and encouraging group, and we are especially so for new writers. 

Anyone interested in learning more about the craft of writing is encouraged to attend! Please bring a friend!! 

We will also be discussing our annual attendance at the Writer's Symposium by the Sea at Point Loma Nazarene University in February. This event is always amazing, but this year is even more special as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of this event with Alice Walker among the speakers. We do not want to miss this special event!

Have a joyous Christmas and a blessed 2020!! 

Writing with you, 

Susanne
