Charlotte and Jane lead off 2014 Writer's Circle.


The Writer’s Circle – a dynamite year ahead for writers and lovers of literature.

I got a call from Irene Warmenhoven who told me about some of the recent events planned for the Writer’s Circle.

First, The Writer’s Circle meets on the last Wednesday of every month (except December) at the Waverley Library at 7 pm.  Open to all and all welcome.

Last month Hugh McDonald dropped in to talk about self publishing and Irene spoke about those two beloved literary heavyweights, Charlotte Bronte and Jane Austen.

At the next meeting, on October 29 (Waverley 7 pm) the group will collaborate on a mystery story to be called “Framed for Murder” an art gallery who-done-it. Picture this. Participants are asked to bring in a couple of paragraphs describing a character who could appear in such a story and from there, the plot thickens! Come prepared to show your Jekyll and Hyde creative side. Judy Greencorn will be along to discuss plot and character in general terms.

November is the Christmas Pot Luck. Please bring nibblies. (no hot dishes please).

January: We learn how to write a magazine article.

February: Tentatively set to look at the art of critiquing with Joan Baril.

Stay tuned for dates for the November, January and February meetings. All at Waverley. 7 pm.

Unfortunately, Writer’s Circle member and organizer, Keith Johnson has had to drop out because of ill health. Please, get well Keith. You have done so much for the group.  Also, poet and poetry maven Paul Gooding, who has given so many interesting workshops on poets ranging from Tennyson to Alan Ginsberg, will not be able to continue his workshops this year due to pressures of work. Thanks for the memorable evenings, Paul.
