Spring Memoir Series

Three Months of
Writing Your Life

Part Workshop~Part Critique
by Rebecca

Village writer Linda Hebert (writing as Linda Summersea), only started writing in 2013 when she began our program. But she submitted her work a few months ago and started a chain of events that landed her at a private dinner party at Cheryl Strayed's home in Portland, Oregon. Linda and Cheryl shared a lengthy discussion of their writing.

Sometimes amazing things happen when you're brave enough and have faith enough to put your work out there. A link to the full story will be in next week's newsletter.  

Congratulations, Linda!
Writers' Night Out will meet this week (April 17) at FRESH on North Main in Eureka. We will be supporting Cocktails for a Cause whose organization this week is the Library Foundation Board, which produces our great Books in Bloom Literary Festival.

You will be asked for a $10 donation at the door and the restaurant will also donate 1/3 of all drink sales. If our group all gets there at 5 or a little after, we can hang out together, and those who want to can eat.  They also have an amazing pastry chef.

The next Thursday, April 24, we will meet at our building.
