Fireside Writers Writing Group – Friday December 16, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Posted by Michael Gorzka on December 11th, 2016

img_5349Introducing…the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML’s 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple:

“I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place.”

— Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed–you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy–all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield’s ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

Next Day & Time: Friday December 16, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
