Writers Circle Update

You are welcome to join in on the last Wednesday of every month at Waverly Library.

Last night, the group discussed the next anthology of their work. Marianne Wahl suggested dividing the book into categories such as mystery stories, science fiction, poetry, the human condition, memoir etc and etc. In the group's latest anthology, the works were set in alphabetical order by author; but there was a general consensus that the subject categories may be more interesting to readers. Then too, writers might consider the categories when preparing their own submissions. The group will begin accepting submissions (short fiction, memoir, non-fiction as well as poetry) at the August meeting on Wednesday, August 26 at 6:30 pm. Note: because the library closes early, the meeting starts at 6:30 rather than the usual time of 7 p.m.

Judith Greencorn led a discussion on publishers and publishing. The meeting continued with a fun writing excise. Joan Baril read a short story called "Unbullshitable."

In July, Paul Gooding will speak on Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning: Their Life, Letters and Love. Wednesday July 29. Please note: because the library closes early, the meeting will start at 6:30 rather than 7 pm.

At the September meeting (Wednesday, September 30) Alan Wade will discuss "The First Story Tellers of the Local Ojibway."
