GPS WILL GET YOU LOST: We are located in the *back* of the SimsburyTown Shops.. look for Foster's Ice Cream on Hopmeadow St., and follow the driveway beside it down behind the plaza on your left. At the *bottom* of the hill, hook L, and we're there
Share what you're working on, and get inspiration and support from other writers! We look forward to meeting and sharing together :)
In the words of this group's facilitator, and author, Tammy Banks: "Writers are essentially pilgrims/pioneers: they're on their respective journeys and learn from writing where they have to go. Sometimes we write just to tell a story inside us that needs to get out. A lot of times, though, we write to find things out -- to make spiritual and emotional connections -- and that's the tack I see this class taking." "We'll explore free-writing and other techniques to help the writers get jump-started. We'll also keep journals or "commonplace books" to jot down ideas, images/bits of descriptions and dreams in, because all those things add incredible texture to a piece of writing, whatever the genre. At meetings, members can share journal entries or not -- that's entirely up to them."
"Everybody will bring a work-in-progress to the class. And we'll talk about each piece. We'll make sure that the comments stay friendly and constructive. :) "
