Circle Read Arounds

Join us: Saturday, Dec. 9 2017 for read around as we share the anticipation and challenge of creating new work, and the commitment to the writing life.

This is our holiday read around where we celebrate the end of another inspiring and rewarding ... and fun ... year together. Please wrap a favorite book and bring to the Circle for our holiday Secret Santa exchange.

December Writing Prompt: "The Conversation."

Write a conversation with a person who is no longer living, or one with whom, for any reason, you were once close and no longer see. You may also write this as fiction; two characters in a novel-in-progress. What is the time of the year? Add body language and descriptive detail to the scene using the writing techniques you have learned this year in the Circle.
Read around helps you discover your personal style of writing, gets your pen moving, and banishes those demons of self-doubt.

We'll meet from 9:30 to noon.

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.

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.
