to Cris Senseman, Shiva Shanti, Alice French, and Valerie Fondetti for stepping up to the donation plates for our workshop space and the Citizen expense. Thanks also to Cris for hauling in a new bathroom cabinet, paper products, and a clock.
Coming this Saturday
The Golden Trilogy

How can you describe the setting and give necessary information without boring the reader? By learning to go deeper into your character's head through point of view and internalization. Learn the magic from Pam Foster who writes both popular fiction and memoir. This Saturday from 1-4 at OUR NEW BUILDING at 177 Huntsville Road. $25.
Read this interview with Pam to see how much fun we are going to have!

Update on Building
The Saturday Writers' Circles enjoyed frequent distractions as work went on at the building.

Our amazing neighbors, friends, and a husband gather to cut the dead limbs from the walnut tree.  

The guys' circle discussed the addition of a kitchen sink. Lizzie Wolf was literally circling between her writing group and the outside efforts, as she has assumed the behemoth undertaking of our landscaping.

It was a wild and wonderful day.  
Note from Alison
I bought this little camper used in 2007 when my migraines were so constant the neurologist said I needed a headache house to get totally away. He envisioned a beach cottage, but I fell  in love with this little thing. 

In 2010, I drove it to New Hampshire to receive my MFA in Fiction, taking only my 83-year-old mom and Traveler. We made it into a three-week trip. 

And now it feels like it's exactly where it needs to be, snuggling up to the back of the Village Writing School
