Circle Read Arounds

We will meet for read around from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 13 at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 7 St. Andrew's Lane, in Ludwig's Corner.

Directions to the church are here.

Our WRITING PROMPT for June:  How do we censor ourselves as writers? What subjects were taboo as we were growing up and how does that influence our writing, whether fiction or non-fiction? 

Write to one of the following prompts:
In my family we never talked about . . .
Certain words/vocabulary were not allowed . . .
Some subjects were only allowed when spoken of guardedly or behind closed doors . . . 
My family always spoke freely (write about that and how it influenced you). 

As always, if this prompt does not suit, please bring to read around what your muse inspires. 

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

PLEASE RSVP Susan if you plan to attend.

Read-around is $12 and is due at the beginning of the read around. The small increase is to help offset the cost of renting the reading room at St. Andrew's.  Thank you.

  • 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.  

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.
