WRITERS’ GROUP NEWSLETTER Donna Bradley September, 2015

Our annual visit from Michael Czarnecki and Steve Coffman delighted many of us again as we sat around a table sharing our stories. Nancy reminded us that this workshop is supported by a grant from New York State Poets and Writers. Thanks to annual grants we have had the benefit of an annual Writing Workshop led by Michael for maybe eighteen years with Steve joining Michael for the past eight years.  These two creative and inspiring writers encourage us with their careful listening and quality critiques of the pieces we share with them.   Continue reading
