(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Public Library Writers’ Group is a collection of people passionate about writing. Members write fiction and non-fiction, children’s books, books for adults, poetry, and prose. The group meets monthly at the ‘X-Press Self-Publishing Lab at Central Library (850 Ouellette Avenue) to talk about various aspects of writing.
July’s meeting will focus on The Power Of Your Words – Using Emotion In Your Writing. The workshop will be presented by guest author M.J. Domet, who is currently on a cross-Canada tour.
Everyone is welcome, no matter what your level of writing skill. Past topics have included what makes a good author reading, how to set up and maintain a web site (perfect for promoting your books), and sales strategies in the local market.
“It’s exciting to see a community of writers coming together and flourishing because of the connections they make,” says Sue Perry, X-Press Self-Publishing Facilitator. “Authors who normally would not meet are sharing experiences and leaving with fresh perspectives on their writing.”
Come and meet interesting people and see what the WPL Writers’ Group is about at the July meeting at Central Library on Tuesday, July 16 at 6:00 pm.
Note to Young Writers: please be aware the Self-Publishing Lab is offering workshops this summer geared to 5-13 year-olds on July 24, 31, and August 7, from 2:00 to 5:00 pm for young folks interested in contributing to the library’s Go Windsor! book, or for those who simply love to write, rhyme, or draw.
