Circle Read Arounds

Read around helps you discover your personal style of writing, gets your pen moving, and banishes those demons of self-doubt.


Join us: Saturday, Dec. 12 2015

We'll meet from 9 to 11:30 a.m. in the reading room at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Ludwig's Corner (the corner of Routes 401 and 100). Church is located right behind the Ludwig's Inn and Oyster Bar).

This is a special session of the Circle  . . . you get to share what you have learned about writing and 'teach' our group.

How do I craft a better story? What compels a reader to turn the page? How do I bring a character or scene alive?  What is voice and how do I bring authenticity to my writing?

We will share in read around our ideas on what makes for good writing. This is a great gift  . . . sharing, instructing and collaborating to support and help each other go forward with our work-in-progress.

PLEASE RSVP Susan Weidener if you plan to attend this read around at

Cost: $12
Directions to the church are here.


  • 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.
