Lovin' Learnin" and Literacy!
Author: Village Member Anne Herron
As always, an incredible experience today at Village Writers’ group! We are a group of men and women who have never ceased to hold dear writing and reading. Each member submits a piece of their writing to read aloud at the next meeting. That way all can read and make comments about the writing prior to gathering together. The writing ranges from chapter books, fantasy, fiction, historical fiction, seasonal poetry, funny current commentary (much like a news column), short stories, travel, autobiography, plays, newspaper op-ed., and I could go on and on. There is just something about sharing our intentional writing of all types that I find exhilarating, courageous and heartening. We keep on writing, seeking advice from each other, exploring new ideas, unafraid of challenges. We have created our Writers’ Group exactly the way we want it to be. (One of the outstanding facets of Village Membership i.e., have an idea, let’s do it and it happens!)
Don’t get me wrong. With the commentary on each other’s writing, we err on the side of constructive approbations and supportive questions. We are not a writing class with the intent of publication as our goal. Hardly, our intentions are to write purposefully, engage each other in lively conversation, thought and laughter. The creative, clever writings never fail to bring me smiles of recognition, cheer and admiration. What better purpose for putting pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard? Join us on the first and third Thursdays at 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
