The Monrovia branch of the Morgan County Public Library is re-launching its writers group. The new program will meet the third Thursday of every month from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. in the community room. The group will now be facilitated by Kelly.

Writers of all ages and experience levels are welcome. All genres are welcome as well.

The specific activities we host during meetings will vary depending upon the composition of the individuals who join the group. At this time we are planning on having the first hour be dedicated to review and discussion of each other's works (distributed in advance). The second hour will be dedicated to general discussion and questions regarding writing and a pre-planned lesson on a topic relating to writing. If time remains we will do writing exercises, so please be sure to bring paper/pen or an electronic device. As group membership grows we will incorporate guest speakers.

Attendees will not be required to share their work. However, if you wish for the group to read, edit and discuss you work it will need to be submitted one week before the meeting via email. You can submit your writing in word format by sending an email to: no later that the second Thursday of the month (i.e. one week before our meeting).

At this time we are not strictly limiting the quantity of writing that can be submitted, but if your work is more than 10 pages you may wish to submit a portion of it at a time (e.g. 10 pages for one meeting and the next 10 pages for the next meeting, etc.).
