Programs for these workshops include discussions on good grammar and punctuation, the technical aspects of writing, what editors look for, and critiquing of members' stories.
The Writers Group meets in the Manzanita Room at the Lake Wildwood Community Center, Manzanita Room, from 2 to 4 p.m. In the few years we have spent together, we have helped hone each other’s skills in producing stories and poetry that is well written from both technical and aesthetic standpoints. More importantly, we have a good time and feel that we are making a genuine contribution to the art of writing. It is a joy to witness the improvement in writing skills that many of us have made. And, the story content is wonderful, too, drawing from our varied life experiences.
If you are interested in joining our writing group, or justvisiting a meeting to see what we do, contact Lew Istre via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
