Women’s Writing Circle News

Our first meeting on Sept. 11 was fabulous with 13 writers in attendance, sharing a variety of work from poetry and memoir to inspirational and spiritual writing. We felt a sense of community and relief from the isolation of the past 18 months. Our next read-around will be Saturday, Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Chester Springs Library, located at 1709 Art School Rd., Chester Springs, PA 19425. Below are guidelines for read-around just as a quick refresher. Bring whatever you have been working on, your poetry, memoir, fiction or essay. Or just come to listen. We look forward to hearing your work.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP before Oct. 9.

It would be wise to bring a mask. If you feel comfortable wearing a mask throughout read-around, please do. While reading your work, you may want to remove your mask to make listening easier. Please remember that only vaccinated writers can attend. I would also suggest bringing your own coffee or tea or water.

I’d especially like to thank Nancy Niggel, director of Chester Springs Library, for graciously making the beautiful community room available to our Women’s Writing Circle.  My hope is that we will meet the second Saturday of the month at the library during this time for the forseeable future. See you on the 9th with bells on! Susan PS: Have I forgotten anything? Or, if you have questions, please contact me.

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.
