A get-together of working writers, published authors, bloggers, journalists, editors, book reviewers, all those for whom writing is central to their lives, to check in on how the writing is going, talk about what’s happening in the publishing world, and share talk of the travails of a writer’s routine. This is an opportunity to catch up with old friends, connect with new people, share your recent accomplishments, and talk about what you’re working on at present. This is not a writing critique group, but a simple gathering of writers taking a break from work. BYOB. Light snacks provided. Non-members welcome.
This event follows our initial SWET Writers’ Salon on April 20. For the May gathering we might share which books inspired us as writers, the ones we read early on that might have guided us towards writing, the ones we read to become a better writer, and the ones we would recommend to a young person who wanted to write. (E. B. White? Orwell? Stephen King? J. R. R. Tolkien?)
