ELIZABETHTOWN — The Elizabethtown Social Center will sponsor a writers group coordinated by Westport author Sandra Weber. The group will be held on the second and fourth Thursdays in January, February and March at 1 p.m. and is open to all skill levels, ages, and interests.
Group members will offer supportive and constructive criticism to each other’s writing efforts and exchange information about writing, publishing, and writer events in the area. The group is open to a wide variety of genre, including short story, novel chapters, poetry, essays, nonfiction book chapters, newsletters, newspaper/magazine articles, and children’s stories or simply recording your memories for your family. The main requirement in the group is that members have a desire to support writers and the creative process. Writing or sharing writing with the group is not required, just an enjoyment of learning about writing and offering encouragement to writers. For those who are (or want to be) writers, it is an opportunity to get feedback, meet other writers, improve your skills, and learn more about publishing.
Weber is an independent scholar with a focus on Adirondack Mountain region and women’s history. She has published nine books, including “Adirondack Roots: Stories of Hiking,” “History and Women,” “Breaking Trail: Remarkable Women of the Adirondacks with co-author, Peggy Lynn,” and, “The Finest Square Mile: Mount Jo and Heart Lake.” She has also penned four children’s books and numerous magazine articles.
For more information about the group, please contact the Social Center at 873-6408 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
