*** Club meets September through June***
The Writers Club, one of the longest standing activities offered by the GWSA, is in need of new members. Membership has dropped in the last year due to the aging process and/or the poor health of some members. You may rest assured that writing or membership in the Club are not contributing factors.
We need people who have a passion for expressing themselves with the written word and would like to share their work with fellow members whether that work be poetry, prose, essay, story, narrative or memoir. We take a non-academic approach insofar as we do not teach writing and accept all levels of expertise. Nothing a member writes and shares need be grammatically correct, nor will it be critiqued. It remains up to the individual member what it is and how he or she chooses to write.
The primary benefits of membership focus on the stimulation of ones’ creative juices, the power of words, developing self-confidence through sharing of written work and the social aspects of mingling with like-minded people. Every meeting ends with a word challenge you may only experience by becoming a member. Every two months, a singular topic is presented for members to write about and read. Four weeks are usually allotted for completion. We do not critique, but we do ‘ooh’, ‘aah’ and laugh a lot.
The Club meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month, except during July and August, in the Boardroom at 1:00pm. A nominal fee of $2.00 per session attended has normally been charged but this is currently under review. As you read this, there are two remaining meetings. June 14th and June 16th before our summer hiatus. We start up again in September, but not until the 27th as the Centre will not be available on the 13th.
Do give us a thought and drop by during any scheduled meeting to see who we are and how we operate. You will be more than welcome!
