    Writer-in-Residence, Launch Preparations

    - 0 Comment(s)

    On Saturday afternoon, September 10th, at two pm, the library's 2011 Writer-in-Residence program will officially launch at the Memorial Park library.

    It will be a delightful afternoon, marking the beginning of an opportunity for every aspiring writer ready to reach out for some professional guidance.

    Naomi K. Lewis will read from a selection of her work, as well as outline plans for her residency. A reception will follow.

    If you follow this little blog, you probably think I've run out of ideas, as I can't stop writing about this whole Writer-in-Residence situation, but the truth is that it's just such a great service, one that this city is fortunate to have, that I feel compelled to continue issuing its details to as many people as I can as often as possible.

    Speaking of details, and plans being outlined, this year's program will feature something new called "Tuesday Night Write", in which you are invited to join Naomi K. Lewis for one hour of prompted silent writing and one hour of discussion, twice a month, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m, at Memorial Park Library. No registration is required.

    Sept 13: Resisting distraction
    Sept 27: Mining memories for material
    Oct 11: Setting and the senses
    Oct 25: Writing about sex
    Nov 8: Stretching your writer’s voice
    Nov 22: TBA
