Next Writers' Workshop Meeting: May 13!!
The next meeting of the Mountain Empire Creative Art Council's Writers' Workshop is Tuesday, May 13 in the Community Room of the Pine Valley Library at 7:00 PM.
Please bring 6-8 copies of your work to share--a poem, a few pages of fiction or nonfiction, song lyrics, etc. We'll read our work aloud while the group makes notes, and then we'll discuss what we think is effective and where improvements may be considered.
We're an encouraging group, with several of our number published, including Maureen Brown's The Exile of Cain, Judith Dupree's living with what remains, and Teresa Travis's Fourteen Flamingos and Smedley.
New writers or just people interested in learning more about the art and craft of writing are welcome to attend; we would love to get to know you!!
NOTE: Writer's Digest magazine has listed three writing contests with June deadlines. Click here for more information: WD Writing Contests.
So we hope to see you on the second Tuesday in May when we meet again to share our writings and encourage one another in pursuing the art of written word.
"Writers ought to write and I take up my pen in the hope that it may loosen my spirit." ~E.M. Forster
