Memoir Writing Circle

Meets the 4th  Tuesday of each month from 2:30 –  4:30 pm, in the cafe.

This group meets once a month.  Members read aloud pieces prepared beforehand.  A monthly prompt is provided for inspiration, but there is no requirement to use it.  Members can write about anything they like.  Pieces may include memoir-style writing, essays, or even, occasionally, fiction.  This is not a “workshop” style group.   We meet simply to enjoy one another’s stories, although there is usually a brief comments/questions discussion following each reading.   The group is suitable for writers of all levels and experience.

This is an open and supportive group. Please contact Eileen Myers at emyers176@yahoo.com for more information or to become part of the group.
