Creative Writing Group – Thursday, July 6, 5:30 PM
Posted by Michael Gorzka on June 30th, 2017
A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors.
While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too–and so are people who’ve been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one’s work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment.
Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play–and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.
Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation.
She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT.
In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review.
