Report from the WRITERS’ GROUP-Next meeting July 8, 1:30 at the library

Although a small group, we always find little nuggets of great writing emerging from our members. In June we were delighted by the writing of the niece of one of our members who was only eleven years old.  We also enjoyed tales of ADK outings, one which caused great laughter when the writer compared a bicycle outing in contrast to the Americade motorcyclists.  We heard a lovely tale of the evolution of a maple leaf, and two short pieces related to gardening.  Finally we were treated to a tale of a boat called a dragger and how it mysteriously appeared along the shore and just as mysteriously disappeared.

“Assignment” suggestion again for next month:  “On the Road”

Donations now Accepted

The Friends have announced that they will be able to take donations of clean, kindly used books for their sale, July 25-26. Thank you!

Indian Lake Writers’ Group Newsletter, May 13, 2015

Eight writers met for a lively meeting on Wednesday.  The growing camaraderie of our group is evident in our conversation and the shared appreciation of the works produced each month.

One suggestion for next month’s writing was to begin with the words “On the road to…,” or perhaps to use the setting poem format distributed at the meeting.  Of course, each of us can always do his or her own thing.

Once again, our works included both narrative and poetry and we shared memoirs as well as thought provoking pieces concerning the universe and the place that we hold in its immensity.

The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 10 at 1:30.  Newcomers are always welcome, and we would be delighted to see you there.
