You are more than welcome to share your talents, questions, works-in-progress, or simply a love of words with fellow wordsmiths at this week’s WordWrites Guild meeting at 6:00pm at the Lawrenceburg Public Library. We will be reading our literary homework based upon the following assignment:

  • a former child star
  • the last day of school

You might be surprised, entertained; even moved, by the varied and personal writing that has been inspired by one set of prompts. It’s like recess for words!

… to always stay on the sunny side of life. Well, that has been easy for most of us as any lingering rchild-830988_1920ain and gloom have given way to sunshine at long last!

This is a perfect time of the year to sit on the beach, find a quiet spot under the night sky, or simply open the window near your desk and have fun with your imagination.

 

The following writing prompts might be good starting points, and 500 or 200 or less than 100 words might be just enough to tell your own story about:

  • a former child star
  • the last day of school

Bring your lyrics, poem, essay – anything you might like – to the next WordWrites Guild meeting on May 25th, at the Lawrenceburg Public Library at 6:00pm.  It’s a great place to share your creativity!

A New Season and A New Schedule

2 Comments

2826, 1926.98

Autumn,  1893    Artist: Harry Siddons Mowbray, American, born Egypt, 1858 – 1928

 

Change is in the air. We wrap it around our bare shoulders on chilly evenings, and we taste it when we bite into hard, cold, just-picked apples. We smell it in smoke-infused breezes and we see it along woodland paths of rust and gold.

This season of change is a fitting time for the WordWrites Guild to announce a new schedule and an invigorating event. As you may already know, tomorrow’s meeting marks the beginning of the new WWG meeting schedule:

Every SECOND Thursday of the month,

we will meet at North Dearborn Branch Library

 

Every FOURTH Thursday of the month,

we will meet at the Lawrenceburg Public Library

 

Our meeting times remain the same – from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, and the premise of the group is unchanged; that is, to offer encouragement, support, and respectful critique to every writer who joins our friendly group to share a love of writing with fellow word-wranglers.

1933.447, 5919
Wooden Writing Tool  ca. 323 B.C.-A.D. 256

 

 

In keeping with our open-door approach to membership and our commitment to the community, WordWrites Guild is hosting the first annual Writers’ Festival on Thursday, October 27th in the Ewbank Room of the Lawrenceburg Public Library.

This free event is open to the public from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM, and offers everyone an opportunity to meet a variety of writers, illustrators, and more. Along with refreshments, there will be a Book Title Scavenger Hunt, a Community Build-a-Book, and terrific door prizes (including a special prize for anyone bringing in our display ad from the Beacon newspaper).

If you, or someone you know, would like to reserve a space (completely free of any fees or charges) to showcase and sell your published books, or if you might like to volunteer for the evening, please contact us – we’d love to hear from you.

Please be sure to join us for this inaugural event, and feel free to bring family and friends – it is only with your attendance that the evening will be a success. Thank you for your interest, your support and your enthusiasm.
