Circle Read-Arounds

We will meet for read-around Saturday, January 10, 2015 from 9 - 11:30 a.m. at Wellington Square Bookshop.

All genres welcome. You do not have to be published.  Come to read, or listen. Free coffee provided by this charming bookstore.

Read-around is $10 and is due at the beginning of the read-around. 

January Writing Prompt: A new year often brings a time to reflect on transitions in life.  Write about a transition in your life:  Transitions might be about one of the following:

A career change
A family change
A new relationship
Changes in health or physical condition
Recovering after loss
A change in belief or values

As always, if this prompt does not suit, bring what your muse inspires.
  • Each writer gets 10 minutes.  She may use this time however she pleases; to read or to read and get feedback on her work.  The time may not exceed 10 minutes.
  • Please practice your reading before you come to the Circle.  It helps those listening to your work and provides for more valuable feedback.
  • This is NOT a critique session.  Critique is offered the last Saturday of the month from 9-11:30 a.m. at Wellington Square Bookshop.

The 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 and publishing options.
