ACPL Writers' Group

by Readers' Services | Feb 16, 2018
Have you always wanted to be a writer?  Are you a writer looking for motivation and community?  Join ACPL's new Writers' Group!

Our Writers' Group aims to provide a supportive community for writers of any experience level.  By providing a forum for sharing works in progress, as well as getting feedback and ideas for moving the works forward, there will be an opportunity to make lasting connections with fellow writers.

Our first meeting is Monday, February 26, from 6:30-8:30 pm.  We'll meet in the Readers' Services Reading Room on the first floor of the Main Library.  For the first meeting, we will spend 15 minutes writing (using a prompt) and sharing our work with the group.  We hope to see you there!

    We had a great first meeting on Monday, with 24 attending. Thanks to all who shared your interests and talents with us. If you missed the first one, however, please feel free to join us at our next meeting, on March 26.

    For those of you who are interested but the day/time aren't workable right now, please keep us in mind if your schedule ever changes.  And thanks for taking the time to share with us that you are interested!

    Also not a good time for me, unfortunately, although I would be excited to join otherwise.  I happen to work weeknights.

    Thank you for your interest! We do not know exactly what direction this group will take until we see who joins us on Monday. So far we've had inquiries and interest from published authors, from experienced writers, and from more novice writers. Please come, and help us grow a group (or groups) that work for everyone.

    I am approaching the advanced age of 79 but have spent a large portion of my life writing advertising for television, radio and print.  I've always thought I'd like to write a book, but never got started.  I wonder if this group would give me a jump-start but the date of this first meeting isn't convenient.

    I am working on my third novel, so I feel I'm a little more advanced than needing to write from prompts.

    Do you have a more advanced group, maybe of people who are working on novels?

    Thank you.

    I would love to join, but this day and time is not convenient. I also paint and this is my painting class time.
