Women’s Writing Circle News

Dear Wonderful Writers,
We have celebrated a fabulous four months together this year in our new home, the Chester Springs Library, and I want to personally thank each of you for making the Women’s Writing Circle richer and more inspiring than I can ever remember. Together, we shared fiction and memoir, poetry and musings, all imbued with myriad experiences and deep feeling. I especially want to thank the library for their hospitality, without which none of this would be possible.

Due to the current situation with the Covid variant and due to the very nature of our Circle, which is to read our work aloud and in person, I feel it imprudent to meet on January 8. I know the Circle eases the isolation that we just thought we had turned the corner on, and we count on this time together. Hopefully (and I suspect this to be true), as we know more, this is a temporary hiatus.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday with friends and family. I hope you get a chance to work on your craft, whether walking in the woods or contemplating that tree from your kitchen window as you sip a cup of coffee. When we return to the Circle with new work, we will again inspire and encourage, as only “sisters” in the Circle can.

Guidelines for Read-Around

Each writer gets 5 minutes. She may use this time however she pleases; to read or to read and get feedback on her work. Please practice your reading before you come to read-around. It helps those listening to your work and provides for more valuable feedback.

The Women’s Writing Circle is a supportive place where we share our love of writing and our work in a spirit of camaraderie and goodwill. The read-around is a lovely exercise of reading aloud what you wrote in an intimate setting while “test-driving” your voice and your work. We also discuss writing techniques.
