The Mountain Empire Creative Arts Council (MECAC) Writers' Workshop meets the second Tuesday of each month in the Community Room of the Pine Valley Library at 7:00 PM.
Our next meeting will be Tuesday, February 9, 2016. Anyone and everyone interested in learning more about writing and publishing are welcome to attend.
If you would like to receive feedback on your writing, bring 8-10 copies of a single poem (or two if they're really short) or 1-2 pages of prose. Writers read their work aloud while listeners jot comments onto the copies they are reading along with, and then encouragement and suggestions are offered.
Keep in mind that the 21st annual Writer's Symposium by the Sea at Point Loma Nazarene University is coming up on February 16-19. Featured speakers include African-American female poet Nikki Giovanni and sports writer/broadcaster Dick Enberg, among others. Prices are quite reasonable at around $15 for the sessions featuring the "big names" and much less for other sessions. Check out the details at Writer's Symposium by the Sea.
We also have big news regarding an upcoming writing workshop featuring Dr. Dean Nelson, the man behind the 21 years of the Writer's Symposium by the Sea, the founder of the journalism department at Point Loma Nazarene University, and the author of at least thirteen books and innumerable articles in just about every publication imaginable. Save the date: Saturday, March 19, and we'll get you more details as they become available!
So we hope to see you at our meeting this Tuesday!
