  • Writers’ Group

    Tuesday, November 6th, 2018
    Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    This friendly writers’ group, which meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month, is for writers who are serious about their craft and in getting their work published. Writers of any genre, from mysteries and contemporary relationship fiction to creative non-fiction and children’s literature, are welcome. Anybody interested in joining the group must talk to Lis King, the group’s leader, before attending their first meeting. This will ensure that the expectations of the group and the individual are met. She will be handling registration for the program and can be reached at 717-299-9368.

    We see this as a critique group meeting in a friendly and relaxed environment. There are many talented writers in our area, and we know that feedback from others is extremely important to them. The group follows a concept that has proven invaluable to the writing community. Participating writers take turns submitting work in progress, not to exceed a certain number of pages. Manuscripts are emailed to members in advance of meetings so they can be read at members’ leisure and the meeting hours are reserved for constructive criticism. This helps writers present their work correctly to agents and publishers. But even more importantly, writers tell us that this format also helps them sharpen their focus, harness their creativity and give them ideas.
