The Village View
A Publication of The Village Writing School

The next workshop will be Dialogue and Setting (with a little module on Research). You asked for a slower pace and more time for exercises. We listened!!

Sign up online at to be sure to reserve your seat on the date you prefer. February 1 or February 15.

Rebecca Mahoney will launch our feature writing project with her workshop on February 6 from 3-5 pm.  Features are popular and publishable. Learn this important skill from a master, whose features have been published in the L.A. Times, the Boston Globe, the Orlando Sentinel, and AP online. Only $20.  

THEN, write a feature on a business of your choice and get guidance on submitting it to five publications.
Time to Decompress!!

This week's Writers' Night Out will be a MOVIE NIGHT!! We will be showing Midnight in Paris, a movie about a modern, struggling writer who dreams of living in 1920s Paris with Hemingway et al.

Soup at 5 pm - Movie at 5:30

Writers Night Out
Our Village Writing School with its modular tables and 70" screen is perfect for programs like last Thursday night when Linda Hebert introduced us to Scrivener, a writing software that is going to be useful to many of us.

Afterward, our visitors from Iowa provided a little levity (see photo on left). Twenty-one people attended, making our seminar room full to capacity.
