The Circle meets the second Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We will meet July 9 for read around at Chester Springs Library. Here’s a writing prompt which I’m borrowing from a recent IWWG online writing workshop I attended. How can nature inspire our creativity, as well as our awe? Think about a particular landscape or place that ‘spoke’ to you.
“A word after a word after a word is Power.” ~ Margaret Atwood
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. There is a $10 fee to attend the Circle for time spent in organizing and a donation to the library. For more information, contact Susan Weidener at: email@example.com
