From the Chesapeake Bay Writers, offering the following events:
March 19, 2023: Open Mic at the Williamsburg Library Stryker Center, 1:00-3:00.
April 30, 2023: "Newspaper Sparks" with Sally Honenberger. Hidden arsonist tendencies when you're writing? Here’s your chance to try something to fan the flames of creativity. Sally will share newspaper scraps and give a few brief sparks of tinder-ready advice, then you can start your own conflagration of characters and challenges. We’ll write and read and write some more. This is not show off but show down time. We’ll read anonymously, poke the embers a bit with polite critique, and then try another newspaper spark. This will be intense fun, coals under your feet, but no pain. A chance to blaze away and send sparks across the galaxies. Location: Settlement at Powhatan Creek, Community Center
GPS: Coordinates get you close - use 4000 River Moor Road. However, after you turn off Monticello Road, pass the pond, and get to the intersection of Saunders Bridge and River Moor, turn right at the traffic circle and turn right into the parking lot.
May 7, 2023: "How to Effectively Critique a Manuscript - An Interactive Presentation for Readers and Writers". This is a joint presentation with the Williamsburg Library, presented by Sally Stiles at Stryker Center, 412 N Boundary St., Williamsburg, VA 23185
