Program Description

Event Details

Are you a writer or wannabe writer?  Here's your chance to meet up with like-minded souls! Hang out with fellow writers, find your people, share information about writing, submitting, author events, and more. Every month we will try to feature a local writer with expertise to share.

At our meeting this month, local novelist, Libby Waterford, will talk informally about the challenges and rewards of switching from traditional publishing to self-publishing. Libby is an instructor at the Westport Writers’ Workshop where she teaches classes on romance and genre fiction. She has participated in National Novel Writing Month every year since 2008 and is a seven-time “winner.”

Come join us! This workshop is for writers of all levels, from beginners to published authors.
